Salt Dough

One of my favorite projects this Christmas was the Salt Dough Ornaments we made. My husband took The Bee to see Tin Tin at the movie theater last week, while Falafel and I got to creating!

These were so much fun to make. Really easy too!

I found the idea of using rubber stamps with ink over at the Artful Parent.

Let me tell you, I LOVE this idea. We have quite the collection of rubber stamps, and they give such a finished look without actually having to draw or paint on them.

I hung them on all the gifts we gave out and attached them to baskets. We also put some on our tree and around the fireplace. Really, anywhere we could hang them!

The recipe I used is Gluten-free (since I can’t touch wheat without getting a rash).

2 cups of GF flour

1 cup of kosher salt

1 cup of water (add slowly and hold some back) I added water and flour as we needed.

We baked them for over 2 hours (closer to three), and then once they were cooled, I gave them a coat of clear matte varnish.

I think we may try to make these again just for gift tags. Or ornaments for another holiday. As you can see, the one on top has a ghost stamp. Very versatile.

Falafel just was given a set of dinosaur cookie cutters for Christmas. I think we will try those next and hang them in her room!

What was your favorite Holiday Project??

  1. I really wanted to make some of these, but I was afraid that they would “pouf up” like the last ones I made. Great job on yours!!!
