I am so excited to share a great Christmas craft project today. Salt dough ornaments and gift tags. For pennies you can make a great gift for your family and friends. I am using the ones my girls and I made as gift tags that the recipients can later use as an ornament. All you need to get started is 1 cup all purpose flour 1/2 cup salt 1/2 water 1,2,3 easy peasy!!! Toss it all in the mixer for a few minutes. Once it is all combined Kneed until smooth I separated mine, so each girl could have one. Roll the dough ball out on wax paper Now for the fun part…. Grab a doily and press it into the dough with the rolling pin. When you lift the doily off you will be left with a beautiful pattern. Next grab a cookie cutter and cut out your ornaments. Remove the dough from around your ornament shapes, lift and place on a cookie sheet and poke a hole with a straw. Cook at 200 degrees for 5-6 hours. Take them out and let them cool. Paint them white, start with the back. After the paint is dry apply glue to the front.
