DIY Corn starch Ornaments

Keep any unused dough covered with a damp paper towel while working to prevent drying out.
Easy Serves
SKILL LEVEL approximately 24 ornaments
1 cup Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
1 cup baking soda
2 tablespoons Mazola® Canola Oil
1 cup water
5 to 10 drops of your favourite essential oil, try cinnamon for a lovely holiday scent
Cookie sheets, cookie cutters, textured rolling pin, cookie stamps, or anything you can press into the dough to create texture. To complete your ornaments, decorate with paint, glitter and/or a clear protective sealer, ribbon or string. Food dehydrator for faster drying, but not necessary.

Combine all ingredients in a pot over medium heat, stir constantly with a wooden spoon. Mixture will begin to bubble and then quickly turn into a dough resembling mashed potatoes, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and turn out onto counter. Once cool enough to handle, knead dough until it is smooth and pliable. If it is slightly sticky you can dust with a bit of cornstarch while kneading.

Roll out to ¼“ thick using a rolling pin. Add texture at this point, or begin cutting out shapes with cookie cutters. Place on a cookie sheet and allow to dry at room temperature overnight. Flip over to dry the other side a second night. If you have a food dehydrator that also works to dry faster, use on lowest temperature setting and dry for approximately 2 hours. Make sure ornaments are completely dry before painting.
