This has been a week of baking at our house. We made six different kinds of cookies on Tuesday and got them all ready to ship out to friends, teachers, and neighbors.
Wednesday we worked most of the day on salt dough ornaments and wreaths for gifts. I made several more of the gingerbread men wreaths
and made a ton of star ornaments for the girls in my class at church.
While making the ornaments, I got the idea to make a star wreath similar to the gingerbread one.
So, I made my salt dough and cut out the stars.
Next, I placed them on the baking pan lined with parchment paper (this is key so it doesn’t stick!!). I attached the stars by placing a little dab of water where the stars touch. Then I baked according to the recipe.
I put a coat of polyurethane on the stars and while wet, My Princess and I sprinkled glitter on them.
Finally, I just attached a ribbon and now have a beautiful new Christmas wreath that will last.
