Salt Dough Ornaments so simple that even your Kids can do! Which is great, because mine are eager to make and do what mummy does. I really want to emphasise handmade & homemade and the best way to do that is get little hands doing!
We rolled out our dough and made a pine needle impressions, then used a star cookie cutter.
Don’t forget to poke holes in them before they dry!
The longest part is the drying- in the oven on a low temperature for a few hours or air dry for a few days. Once they are dry I will let my kids paint & then varnish a couple. I think I will leave several the natural dough colour, but I will see where inspiration takes me.
