Krampus ornament from salt dough

Do you know the krampus? In Hungary he is the escort of Saint Nicholas who punishes the naughty children. But I was never afraid of him, probably because I was a good girl and because nobody wanted to frighten me with the krampus. This is why I liked him as much as Saint Nicholas. Really, for me he is just a funny-happy-jolly creature. 

I have been longing to make a krampus from salt dough a long time ago, so I had bought a 6.5 cm krampus cookie cutter and later a 9 cm cookie cutter because the smaller hadn't worked well. The bigger was better but even with this I  decided to cut off the harpoon because it was unstable. 

He is so cute, isn't he?
