Christmas Salt Ornaments

We made some salt ornaments this morning. We did handprints and I also did footprints as well for Weston.

I think they turned out really well.

If you want to make some salt ornaments for you and your family here are the ingredients and instructions.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of salt
  • 1/2 cup of water

Instructions

  1. Mix ingredients until fully incorporated.
  2. Knead dough for 7-10 minutes or until soft and smooth.
  3. Roll out to your desired thickness on a floured surface.
  4. Create your ornaments.
  5. Pole a hole in each for hanging (with a straw or skewer)
  6. Either bake in the oven at 200 degrees for a couple of hours or air dry for a few days until dry.
  7. You can paint it or leave it the way it is. If you paint it you will want to spray a couple of coats of poly to seal and help it last.

Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season!
