Salt Dough Ornaments

So I'm still on my mission to be a more "hands-on" mom. Tonight we made ornaments for our tree.

Set oven to 200F
Then we mixed 1c of all-purpose flour
1/2c salt
~3/4c of water

We rolled it out with our rolling pin and used our Christmas cookie cutter shapes.

Here's the aftermath:

Even Maggie wanted to join in on the fun:

We baked them for what seemed an eternity (about 3 hours) then I flipped them over for about another hour. Then came the fun part: paint and glitter!
I asked Lee if he were purposefully trying to make the ugliest ornaments ever! 
Lia's Creations!
These were mine- minus the pink tri-heart at the top. That was lee's.


  1. I made those as a child with my mom. We made them many many years and she gave them to me recently. LOVE looking back at them.

    Don't forget to seal them with some varnish (so they do not mold). They will last for years. :)

    PS - If you add instant coffee to the dough it will make brown and you can make bears. ;) It also smells like coffee when you bake them.

    1. OH wow! Thanks for the tips!!!! I'm not crafty at all, so I don't know all those details. Thanks for stopping by :D

  2. love it! you are a good mama
