The recipe of salt dough is easy-peasy. You only need to mix one cup of salt with one cup of flour and half a cup of water. Knead all the ingredients into a smooth dough and then cut shapes using cookie cutters. Poke holes in the shapes while the dough is still soft for threading in twine. Cut another piece of twine in the desired length and then tie all the ornaments to it to make a garland.
