Salt Dough Ornaments

Time to trim the tree! Forget fancy bows and Martha Stewart decorations. Let’s make our own! Salt dough ornaments add a personal homemade touch to any Christmas tree. And they will even last for years to come. Making these ornaments is a wonderful family night activity. So turn on the Christmas music, warm up the oven, and spend some holiday time with your family.

Salt Dough Ornaments

2 C. flour
1 C. salt
1 C. water

Christmas Cookie Cutters
Acrylic paint, glitter, beads, and any other festive decorations

Yarn or string

Mix salt and flour. Add in half the water, then gradually add the remaining water. Knead until the dough is smooth, this can take up to 10 minutes.

For flat dough ornaments roll out the dough on baking paper. You can also be creative and make odd shapes and wreaths (takes longer to bake.) Use cookie cutters, cut-out templates, or just use your hands.

Dust dough with flour and begin to add details to the ornaments with a toothpick, popsicle stick, and knife.

Don’t forget to use a straw to make a hole so you can hang the ornament.

Baking: Time varies based on thickness of ornament
Temperature: 325°F.
Time: 1 1/2 hours – or until dry

Let cool before you begin. Paint with acrylic paints. Glue on beads, buttons, or any fun accessory. Coat with acrylic varnish when everything is dry.
