Plastic GlovesOptional to protect your hands from turning green
Make a batch of salt dough following the instructions linked above.
Wearing a pair of plastic gloves so that you don’t cover your hands in green add some food colouring to the dough and knead.
Continue adding the colouring until you have your desired green colour.
Roll out the salt dough to around 1/2cm thick.
Then using the cookie cutter cut out your shamrock decorations.
Using the skewer piece a hole at the top of the shamrock.
Then place on a lined baking tray in an oven at your lowest temperature for around 2hours.
Once dried attach some ribbon. If you have a loop it will work to hang if not then it finishes them off nicely.
If you wish to use them as coasters for a St Patrick's Day Party then leave out the skewered hole and instead when finished coat with some mod podge or similar to seal them and prevent them going soggy if drinks are spilt on them.
