Friday's Fun: Dough Ornaments/Cross Necklaces

These are so fun and so easy. And no need to worry about a recall on them (did you see the recent recall on cross necklaces? YIKES!)

DOUGH ART CROSSES/ORNAMENTS (perfect to help keep the house warm! LOL!)
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups water.

Knead dough for five minutes, after which it will be ready for shaping.
Shape dough into 2" high crosses or other shape (for ornament).
Punch a hole for a cord.
Place shaped dough on greased cookie sheet. Bake for 3 hours at 350F, turn off oven and allow to cool overnight.
Next day, you can paint your crosses.Use one color at a time and allow to dry before using the next color so that colors do not run together.
