Salt Dough Ornaments

Over the past week John helped Mallory make salt dough ornaments to give to her grandparents as gifts. It was so easy and fun and we had all the ingredients on hand.


4 cups of flower
1 cup of salt
1 and 1/2 cups of hot water

Warning, this makes a LOT of ornaments. Feel free to half it!


1: Mix ingredients to form dough, roll 1/4 inch thick.

2. Use cookie cutters to cut a variety of shapes. We used snowmen, gingerbread men, stockings, and stars. I wish we had Christmas trees.

3. Use and microwave safe plate and microwave for 1 minute at a time, for up to 4 minutes. Longer if you need to but they will be hard when they are done.

4. Decorate! Use ribbon to hang. (John used pipe cleaners for some reason? I'm not a fan...)
