It is December, it is time to counting down for Christmas, 19 days to go!!! The closer it gets, the more excited I will be!!! I have so many things to do and time is really clicking fast!!! I have my kids to help in making these easy salt dough ornaments. As the matter of fact…. the cleaning up of the “aftermath” is taking me more time 🙄 However, I love to see them having fun in the process of making these salt dough ornaments, it sure was a “Memory Making” moment!
I modified the traditional recipe of the salt dough by replacing half portion of the plain flour to cornstarch. I find the modified recipe is more compact and solid, I love it! We made a few designs with the salt dough; plain ornaments, stamped ornaments, food colored ornaments, painted and glittered ornaments. My kids waited patiently for the salt dough ornaments to fully dried, hardened and cool down before they can paint and decorate the salt dough ornaments they have made.
The finished salt dough ornaments are not only good as the Christmas tree ornaments, you can basically hang them on your other Christmas decorations. You may also use it together with a gift tag in your gift wrappings.
Hope you enjoy every moment in preparing for the Christmas event!
