So on my Thanksgiving vacation I learned how to make adorable satin hair flowers. When I explained to the lady at the Utah fabric store what I was trying to make she acted like EVERYBODY but me knew how to make satin hair flowers already. I feel crafty until I visit Utah and then I just feel incompetent. It's like the craftiest place on earth. Also VERY snowy, which made my kids super happy. Especially Ellie who had never even seen snow! On to the hair flowers.

2 cups flour
1 cup regular salt
1 cup water
Mix like you would sugar cookies in the mixer than roll out and cut into cute shapes with cookie cutters. Poke hole with a toothpick if you want to hang as ornament. Bake at 220 degrees for about two hours. Paint and glitter as desired. Enjoy!
Salt dough crafts are one of my favorite crafts to do with my kids. We do them all year round whenever the kids want something fast to paint but Christmas ornaments are my favorite! The year we moved to Japan we had to make ALL our Christmas ornaments out of salt dough since I accidently put all our Christmas stuff in storage. But the tree was still way cute. I write the kids name and year on the back of the ornament. We even have one from 1985 when my husband was 6! They are cheap, cute and fun!
