Hi I was thinking of making some salt dough tree decorations, never made them before and when I have looked up the recipe they are all different!

Has anyone got a tried and tested method for this please thank you XxX

I've used the recipe on this thread.

I wouldn't dry it out in the microwave though as mine broke after I did :(

I made some last week with the following recipe

2 cups of plain flour
2 cups of salt
1 cup of water

Just put the flour and salt in bowl and slowly mix in the water.

When i was then rolling the dough and breaking pieces off I would flour the table and flour my hands. If the mixture was still too sticky i would keep dipping my hands in flour until i could the roll the mixture out without it being too sticky.

I then put oven on 100 degrees C and left in oven for 2 hours

I painted them yesterday and they look fab :clapping:
