Salt Dough Ornaments

The best kind of ornaments on a Christmas tree are the ones my kids made. I absolutely love the frames made from popsicle sticks, the tiny thumbprints turned reindeer, and the hand painted happiness with a picture of the little cherub at that bright beautiful smile because they are so proud of their masterpiece..

These Easy Homemade Salt Dough Ornaments only require 3 ingredients! This is such a cheap (and totally fun!) activity to do at home with the kids this Christmas!


1/2 cup salt

1 cup flour

1/2 cup water


Whisk the salt and flour together in a large bowl.

Gradually stir in the water. When the dough has just combined, turn it onto a floured surface and gently knead until it's pliable and smooth.

Roll it out to about 1/4" thick and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Punch a hole at the top of the shapes and lay out on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 250 for 2 hours. Let the "cookies" cool completely and then decorate with paint and glitter.


Have Fun!!
