Salt Dough Ornaments-Page 2


Directions


Mix it all together, roll out your dough and make your ornaments just as you would sugar cookies. Stick them in a 250 degree oven for three hours, and viola.

Sounds so simple doesn’t it? But allow me to add a few points.

Add the water slowly, you might not need it all. I ended up with dough that was extremely sticky.

Don’t roll your dough too thin. After reading and looking at the pictures from yesterday’s Gingerbread Salt Dough ornaments I realized this was another mistake I made.

Adding evergreen leaves looks really pretty BUT after all that time in the oven they practically turn to dust when you touch them.

Drinking straws make the perfect sized holes for hanging!

If the goal is to have really, really white ornaments use air dry clay. Sincerely I don’t know what kind of Photoshop magic some of these other crafters use to make their ornaments look so white!

The most important point to remember is when all else fails have fun and just go with it.
