I tried about three times to make the recipe gluten free using our gluten free playdough recipe (since we still have bags of it from our event)--without success. But I'm sure one of you GF moms knows how...please chime in if you do!

Ornament Dough (contains wheat)
The original recipe states "makes 12", but I got more like 24 pieces out of this recipe.
4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cups water
cinnamon & nutmeg*
Paint (I liked the metallic acryllic paints)
bowl of water
ribbon or twine

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Combine all ingredients, mixing well, and knead for 10 to 20 minutes. We added cinnamon and nutmeg, and it smelled yummy during kneading and baking, but the smell won't last too long.
5. Paint (I used acrylic paints), glitter, and let dry. Spray with varnish for shine and preservation. (It seemed to help set the glitter, too, since I didn't use glue.)
