My idea of a simple craft and fun last minute Holiday gift or activity for adults or kids are painted ornaments.  You can use a salt dough recipe or a cornstarch recipe (as featured in the first picture), or you can use wooden shapes, or even polymer clay.  I love the salt dough or cornstarch based ornaments because I always have those ingredients around my house.

Whichever recipe you choose, have fun painting it with simple geometric shapes and patterns to create a folk style ornament (my personal favorite!) that is simple and easy for just about anyone.  Add a fun ribbon to finish your piece, and voila!  You have the perfect last minute holiday gift or craft!  Enjoy! :)
