Hey there everybody! Today, I am going to show you how to make your own salt dough ornaments! I love to make these so much because they remind me of when I used to do this with my mom as a kid. These are super awesome gifts, ornaments for the tree, anything! Let’s get started!
But first, If you haven’t already linked up your most recent post to the Wordless Wednesday Link Party at my blog, CLICK HERE to link up your awesome projects so I can look at them! 🙂
Okay! You will need:
2 cups all-purpose flour ($1 at Walmart)
1 cup salt ($1 at Walmart)
1 cup water
Let’s make these babies!
First, preheat the oven to 300˚F.
Then, Mix flour and water together.
Then add water slowly into the mixture while still mixing.
Mix until it becomes like cookie dough. DON’T EAT IT- it tastes super salty and nasty. Just trust me on this one!
Then, wrap it in plastic wrap and put it into the refrigerator for 10 minutes. This will firm up the dough.
When it is done firming, roll out your dough on a well floured surface. You want it to be about 1/4 – 1/2 inch thick.
Take your cookie cutters and cut out whatever shape you want – I chose a star!
After you are done cutting them out, get something pokey, like a toothpick, or a chopstick and poke a hole at the top of the object you cut out.
Then, lay them out onto a cookie sheet that has wax paper put down. This will make it easier to pick up. Put them into the oven for 30 minutes, checking on them to make sure they are hard, but do not turn brown.
Ta-Da! These turned out awesome! You can now decorate them however you want. I used Sharpie for some of them, writing the first letter of their name and 2014. You could also use glitter glue, or anything else you can think of to decorate these! Yay! Have fun with these!
