Salt dough ornaments are a classic! Three ingredients to make a lifelong memory-what’s not to love?! Use this recipe to create your ornaments!
- 1 cup of Salt
- 4 cups of Flour
- 1.5 cups of Water
- Cookie Cutters (optional)
Start by mixing all three ingredients together. Keep mixing and kneading until it becomes a dough. Then roll out the dough to a ¼ inch thick. Once it is rolled out, you can then cut out your ornaments! Cookie cutters come in handy but are not necessary. Remember to cut a hole at the top to insert a string so you can hang your ornament. The easiest way to make the perfect size hole is by using a straw. This batch makes about 2 dozen ornaments.
You can decorate these however you’d like! Paint, add glitter, your handprints or your favorite furry friend’s paw print! The possibilities are endless!
