Salt dough Ornaments

First of Merry Christmas to all my lovely readers!  I hope everyone is having a blessed holiday.

I wanted to post this post the other day but got another stomach bug grrr.
We made salt dough ornaments the other day.  It was a huge mess but they turned out quite cute.
What a mess!

  It was a cup of flour, a cup of salt and about a half cup of water added slowly to make a dough.
You then roll it out and make shapes, hand prints, whatever.
Then you cook it on 200 degrees for a few hours until it is hard and not sticky anymore.  I did flip mine once to speed up the process.
I then painted it with glitter acrylic paints and once that had dried covered it with mod podge to seal it.
All it needs is a ribbon

  1. I have been wanting to make these. I'm glad it sounds fairly easy. Merry Christmas!

  2. That stomach bug sure has been going around. I managed to get lucky this time around and not get it, however my hubs and girls were not so lucky. Glad you are feeling better! And wow what a mess, but I just love the hand print, we made these a few years ago but I never did think to do a hand print. Guess we know what we will be doing next year! Thanks for sharing on We Made That!

  3. I'm gonna try these this year we love making ornaments The homemade ornaments are my favorites. they bring back so many memories when decorating the tree.

    1. I didn't end up getting to make any this year. Made me sad. I was planning on doing reindeer foot prints but it just didn't happen. Boo.

  4. i love making these. it will be the perfect fathers day gift. hoping to make it this weekend!
