52 Weeks of Pinterest: Week 48 – Salt Dough Ornaments!

This year I wanted to go with a resolution I would have no problem sticking to! Then as I was pinning an item on Pinterest, a light bulb flashed on above my head. Ok, maybe not literally, but this great idea popped into my head. Those of us who are Pinterest users know that we pin hundreds of things a week, but do we ever do them? So I decided this year I would do one of my pins every week. At the moment, 52 weeks of Pinterest was born. Each week I will do something I found on Pinterest rather it be a craft, new recipe, organizing technique, or whatever!

This week we made these fun Salt Dough Ornaments.

What You Need:

1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Salt
½ Cup Water

Mix all of your ingredients and knead until a dough forms.

Roll the dough out to about ¼” thick. We chose to do handprints and footprints to make our ornaments but you can use cookie cutters or whatever you would like to make them. If you do the handprints and footprints, do the impressions and then use a pizza cutter or knife to trim around it. Be sure to poke a hole with a knife to put string through fro hanging once completed.

Bake in the oven at 200°F for 3 hours. Once baked and cooled, paint with acrylic paint and spray with clear sealant to seal it!

Simple and fun!
