Christmas Ornament Making

they look delicious don't they? But don't be fooled...these are our ornaments...our very salty ornaments. The kids and i spent a day or two working on salt dough ornaments. I think this is the first time i have made them since i was in preschool.

They were both great kitchen helpers...they both love to stir.
And they both love to pose!!! Cutting them out was lots of fun. They had a good time choosing and doing the work.
After they were dry we painted them all and let them dry. Some were gifts and some went right on our tree.

The recipe is super easy you just have to have a little time for the baking part since they need to be in there for a couple hours. You can check it out here. It is also a good project for valentines...my mom still has a heart shaped salt dough necklace i made her a good 25 years ago.

I've always meant to make salt dough with the kids, but never got around to it. Maybe Valentines would be a good time.

Reminds me the year we spent Christmas in Hungary. Teri and Sofi made us ornaments. When we got home we put them away for the next year. The following year, I must have hung two of them too low to the ground because Ginger thought they were doggie cookies.
