Leonie,

Would you mind posting the recipe for this or emailing me? Last year, we did this project but I can't find our's.

Thank you!

Salt dough - 3 cups flour, 1 1/2 cups salt. Mix to a pliable dough with warm water. Knead into three pieces, from ropes, plait or braid the three ropes. Add toothpicks/halved skweres/whatever to represent thorns.

Either leave to air dry or bake in a low oven until "firm". When cool and dry, paint or spray with varnish.

I added a base and threaded a purple ribbon...
