Looking for Sustainability ideas

I thought I find a way to keep costs down while still trying to stay eco-friendly. Trying to keep striving for sustainability. This a record of that journey.

Ornament dough

Salt dough

2 cups flour
1/2 cup salt
3/4 cups water

Mix the flour, salt and water together until well combined.

Shape or roll out dough and use cookie cutters for the ornament.

Bake at 300 degrees for 1/2 hour.

Let cool before painting. Can use nail polish also.

Applesauce dough

1 cup Applesauce
1 1/2 cups ground ginger, allspice, cinnamon and clove (mixed as desired)
1 squirt of school glue

Mix your ingredients together. If your dough seems crumbly you can add more applesauce or even just plain water.

As with the Salt dough, you can use this to make 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional ornaments.

Once shaped the dough needs to cook for an hour at 200 degrees F., then cool completely before decorating. You can also leave the ornaments to air dry for several days if you have the time.

Decorate! Decorate as desired with glitter, paint, googly eyes, cotton pom-poms. Whatever you want. You can seal with a few clear final coats of paint (decoupage style).
