Christmas here isn’t a big deal. It’s the equivalent of Halloween or Valentine’s day in Manila. Some celebrate, others don’t.
Ingredients to make the salt dough: half-cup water, half-cup salt, 1 cup flour plus some more for kneading. Looks easy enough, right? Best if you can add the water a little at a time so you can manage the stickiness. Roll them out and shape as desired. Then, bake at 100c for 3 to 4 hours.
That was supposed to be a handprint. Oh well. Came out like focaccia bread.
We painted them but they ended up tacky. I think it’s because you’re supposed to use acrylic paint. We couldn’t be bothered with it and used watercolors. Hahaha! Makings of pinterest fails.
So I tried to dry them in the oven. I over baked them again and they all turned into charcoal! Someone hasn’t been a good girl (me!). No pictures of the burnt stuff. Our kitchen still smells!
We’ll try again next year.
In the meantime, we made another Christmas craft.
Made out of these materials we had in the house.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
