I know this is a little after Christmas, but I wanted to still share this will you in case you want to make one for next year. The idea came about after looking for kid crafts I could make with my two girls and use as grandparent gifts. When looking online I came across several thumb print ideas, and that got my creative juices flowing.
I decided to combine a thumbprint with a salt dough ornament. I started with the basic salt dough recipe, now keep in mind I just wanted a few ornaments so I 1/4th the normal recipe.
1 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1/3 cup water
I then used holiday leaf cookie cutters and cut out several leaves. The next step was to have each girl press her thumbprint into the leaf. Then I used a straw to punch a hole in the top. Once that was done I baked them at 300 degrees for 30 mins.
