DIY Salt Dough Ornaments

This is kind of last minute, but here is a tutorial for cute salt dough/ clay ornaments.

  • salt dough recipe & ingredients
  • ribbon to hang ornament
  • plastic straw (to poke a hole)
  • plastic or metal cookie cutter
  • watercolors + brush

      1. Make the salt dough using the recipe. 
      2. Shape some salt dough using a cookie cutter, making sure it's somewhat flat.
      3. Using a straw, poke a hole at the top of the ornament. 
      4. After the ornament(s) has air dried for a day or two- I know, a long time... paint them with watercolors.
      5. When the watercolors dry, string a ribbon through the hole you made with the straw and tie it off.
      All done- it may be a little squishy though... :D

      Merry Christmas!!!
