They are really easy and cheap to make.  You can make any design that your imagination can think of and you can leave them natural or you can decorate them with paint or embellishments.

For all of the ornaments, I used the below recipe and I baked them in the oven at 200 degrees fahrenheit for 2-3 hours.  This recipe will make quite a few ornaments, so if you only want to make a few then I suggest cutting the recipe in half. You can find the video tutorial here or at the bottom of this post.
