Ornaments for Fur Babies

Ok for those of you with fur babies, how about personalised Christmas Ornaments? The how to is on the blog!
You will need:
1 cup flour
½ cup salt
½ cup water
A straw
A glass or circle cookie cutter
Rolling pin
Baking sheet
Ribbon, for hanging
Optional: paint, glitter, ink, markers

Homemade Dog Paw Print Ornaments Instructions:

Preheat oven to 200°.
Combine flour, salt, and water in a large bowl. Flip out onto a well floured surface, knead with your hands for a few minutes until dough is smooth.
Roll dough out with rolling pin 1/4” to 1/2” thick.
Use a cup/jar to cut a circle out of dough (make sure it is large enough that your dogs paw will fit in the circle with room to spare).
Press your pets paw into the center of the dough circle firmly.
You want to handle the dough as little as possible to keep it from becoming stretched out, the best way to do this is to move it to a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper and then make the paw impression.
At the top of the circle use a straw to cut a hole for hanging ribbon.
Bake for 2 hours.
Remove from oven, cool and decorate as you like.
Leave it plain, paint it, add glitter, sequins, use markers or a paint pen to fill in your pets name and the year. Tie on a ribbon in your pre-cut hole to hang from the tree.
