A Prettier Ornament

This time we used homemade play dough to make a Christmas ornament.

It was remarkably simple. I rolled out the dough with an old rolling pin. Elly pressed a star cookie cutter into the dough. We both pulled away the excess dough. The ornament was then left to dry for a week. Before hanging it on the tree, I coated it with a spray acrylic gloss. I read somewhere that the gloss would help preserve it.

While it was still wet, I scratched in the words “Elly” and “2011” with a toothpick. Unfortunately, it is hard to read them now.
