We’re making salt dough ornaments this year. It’s an inexpensive thing to do. Like the little birdies and things? We made those using a Wilton mold originally intended for fondant and gum paste. The brown bits were colored with cinnamon and clove, the blue, green, and red were done with paste food coloring, and the white is the natural color of the dough. We also used cookie cutters and some free form sculpting. Fun for the whole neighborhood!
