One of my favorite holiday traditions I have with my kids is to make salt dough ornaments. We make them each year, and create various shapes and initials to decorate. Today, I’m sharing one version of our salt dough ornaments–initials that you can attach to gifts or hang from the tree!
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup salt
- 3/4-1 cup water
- Initial cookie cutters
- Mod Podge Sparkle
- Paint for dipping (if desired)
- Twine or ribbon for hanging
Step 1: Make your dough by mixing your flour, salt and water. If your dough is too dry, add a bit more water, if it’s too wet, just add more flour . . . salt dough is very forgiving; it’s hard to mess it up!
Step 4: I decided to dip my ornaments in gold paint (which I added to a cup and mixed with about a tablespoon of water to thin), but you can decorate your ornaments with glitter, craft paint, or anything else your heart desires. Dip your initials, and let dry on parchment paper.
Thanks for reading all about my salt dough ornaments and initial gift toppers. Have a lovely day!
