Salt Dough Ornaments

Salt Dough Ornament
Simple salt dough ornament. What a great way to include your pet in the festivities!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • paint(optional)
  • parchment paper
  • straw for hole punch

Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients. If the dough seems too dry, add more water.
  2. Split the dough into several parts.
  3. Shape the dough and place on a baking sheet (or oven safe plate), covered with parchment paper. I smoothed the top of the dough out by laying parchment paper on top and rubbing my hands on it.
  4. Gently push either a foot, hand, paw, etc into the dough circles.
  5. Use a knife to cut clean edges around imprint if you would like
  6. make a hole in the top of the ornament with the straw
  7. Bake at 200°F for 3-6 hours until dry.
  8. Allow to cool.
  9. (Optional) Paint with acrylic paint.
