Salt Dough Ornaments



How fun are these?? My family had a great time making these Salt Dough Ornaments.. They are quite easy too.. My kind of crafting!

RECIPE
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water

Directions:

1. Mix salt and flour.
2. Add in half the water, then gradually add the remaining water.
3. Knead until the dough is smooth
4.  Roll out the dough on baking paper or floured counter top
5. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters or design your own.

Bake at 250 for 1-1 1/2 hr Make sure you don't burn them.
Let cool completely & paint. On the Candy Canes my daughter used glitter glue & the snowmen we used acrylic paint then modge podged them & sprinkled glitter on them.

I absolutely LOVE salt dough. Your ornaments turned out so beautifully! I made a garland this year out of salt dough beads. It took forever to paint them, but I really love it -- though it weighs a ton, and I sort of drape it across my mantel rather than hang it on the tree : )
Thanks for sharing your ornaments. I have some salt dough left over. I might try to make a few.
