Salt Dough... a fun, easy and inexpensive lil' craft project. These pictures are from 4 years ago but I pulled them back out to share with you. I still get lots of e-mails about my salt dough ornaments so here goes the "how to".
2 c. All Purpose Flour
1 c. Salt
1 c. Water
Mix the salt and flour then add water.
Add a lil' flour if sticky, a lil' extra water if to dry.
Shape using your hands or cookie cutters - these are all free form.
Add details with toothpicks and insert wire at this time.
Bake at 325 degrees for 1.5 hours. Adjust if necessary depending on thickness.
Paint to your liking...
Then glaze for a "not so harsh" look. Spray with polyurethane to seal.
Ta Da - that's it! Great bowl fillers, ornaments, package tie-ons, gifts - well, the list goes on and on!
Salt dough is great fun for kids as well as us "Big" kids too.
Have Fun and Happy Fall!
