Salt Dough Ornaments

Salt Dough Ornaments

Salt Dough Ornaments are fun to make. They can be air dried, but drying in an oven is preferable. Paint them with acrylic paint and add a coat of clear spray for colorful, long lasting, unique holiday ornaments.

  • 1-1/4 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup salt
  • 4 cups flour

Preparation -
Pour the boiling water over the salt and stir. Allow to cool, then add the flour. Mix well, forming a ball. Knead until the dough is soft and workable. Roll the dough on a floured surface. Cut with your favorite cookie cutters into desired shapes. Make a hole in the top of each one for hanging. A thin drinking straw works well for this. Place the cut out dough on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Bake at 175º for 2 hours or until the dough becomes hard. When thoroughly cooled and dry, paint and decorate the ornaments with acrylic craft paint. After the paint is dry, wait 24 hours, then spray with 2 or 3 coats of clear acrylic paint. Allowing complete drying between coats. Tie a small piece of ribbon or yarn through the hole for hanging.
