Salt Dough Ornaments Recipe

This simple and very inexpensive recipe to make holiday ornaments is a great way to entertain children - and makes for excellent gifts that they can give their family and friends. Remember to grab your 55-recipe bonus e-Book accessible below too!

  • 1-3/4 cup hot water

  • 1 cup salt (table or popcorn salt)

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • Straw

  • Yarn or String (for hanging)

Mix the water and salt and let sit for a minute or so to allow some of the salt to dissolve. In the bowl of an electric mixer, slowly add the flour to the salt water, and mix all together until smooth and pliable. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let sit for about 5 minutes.

Roll out to a 3/4-inch thickness on a floured surface and cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Take a straw and poke a hole at the top of the ornament (to hang with string). Place the "ornaments" on a non-stick baking sheet and bake in a 300-degree oven for an hour.

Remember, you do not want them too dark in color or it could interfere with the decorating of the "ornaments".

Let the "ornaments" cool completely. Then paint using acrylic paints and decorate them as you like. Makes about 2 dozen pieces, but please do not eat them! These are for decorative purposes only.
