Hey there. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve written. There has been quite a bit going on. But since it’s officially Christmas season I wanted to share a holiday decorating tip with you guys. I have teamed up with 14 other RV bloggers to bring you some different holiday decorative ideas for you RV! Make sure to check out this link at the bottom of this post to see what others have done to their home on wheels. New links for others posts will be added daily for the next several days.
When I was younger something I remember growing up were the handmade clay ornaments we made for our tree. Unfortunately at one point in time the plastic bags didn’t get closed all the way and some bugs got into the bags and pretty much tore them all up. I decided this year I would make some new ones.
The recipe is really easy. Although I say it’s a family recipe because I got it from my mother it’s definitely not any family secret as you can find the recipe pretty much anywhere online. So here it is below.
4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cups of water
1 cup salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Mix the flour, salt and water. Knead dough until smooth. Roll out dough and cut into desired shapes. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour. Once cool paint with colors, if desired.
Easy peasy right?
I went to Hobby Lobby and got some small holiday cookie cutters and some acrylic paints. Then from there it’s just up to your imagination. Here is what my creations wound up looking like. (Please be kind, I haven’t ever done this myself). I forgot to make holes in the tops but I would recommend doing that before baking. Then you can string them up on your Christmas tree with some holiday style ribbon! If you want to save them for future decorating I would recommend spraying them or painting them with some kinda of sealant to keep the bugs away.
You know how I mentioned I had teamed up with other bloggers? Well here is the link below to show you all the other wonderful ideas that others have come up with to decorate their homes for the holiday season. Just click the photo to go to the post for that specific blogger!
