Last night, Ava and I made salt dough ornaments to hang on our mantle as well as for gift tags. They are so easy to make and a great kid-friendly craft!
Here’s how to make them if you’re looking for something fun to do with your family:
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup cold water
Blend all three ingredients in a mixing bowl until the dough forms into a ball.
Knead until dough becomes soft and pliable.
Roll dough onto lightly floured surface – approx. 1/8″ thick.
Cut out your shapes (this is where we wrote our words onto the dough) and use a straw to make a hole to thread your ornament.
Set shapes onto cookie sheet (we lined ours with parchment paper).
Bake for 2 hours at 220°F.
Let cool before painting.
For gift tags, we wrote on the back of the ornament with a fine tip marker. Works perfectly!
Happy ornament making!
