Salt Dough Christmas Ornaments

This morning peebs and I decided to try and make some salt dough ornaments ! I did not plan ahead ( per usual) so I have no cookie cutters, but what I really wanted was to make his handprint ornament like we did last year.

Step 1: Preheat the over to 250


 Step 2: Bowl, Flour, Salt, Water, Measuring Cup.

  • 2 cups of Flour
  • 1 cup of Salt
  • 1 cup of water

Grizas don't own a rolling pin, so I just used a glass to roll out the dough:

 I also used the glass to cut perfectly round ornaments out for handprinting. I can tell you that my boy thought this was ridiculous. He DID NOT want to make handprints. He wanted to look, but that was it.
 and Momma pushed his little stubborn hand down anyway leaving me with some kind of sad impressions:
I used a paintbrush handle to poke a hole through. Don't forget that step or else you will be left with some cute paperweights.
(only 2 of my circles were big enough for his gigantic toddler hands, so I am gonna make photo frames with the other 2 and just pushed down the center for moge-podging a picture later.
 and because you need to see the whole picture.......
 Here is one MAD little boy when mean ole momma wouldn't let him organize the dog food . 
 SO DRAMATIC
 and when standing up screaming becomes too taxing, time to sit, and scream. HA

Merry Christmas Y'all!

That middle photo is killing me -- he is precious even when he is screaming! (Says the woman who is a whole state away... HA!)

so funny, I'm right there with ya on the DRAMATIC temper tantrums when M doesn't get his way! So hard not to laugh at them when they do it! I meant to email you this link before Christmas but, well, ya know. :) Anyway, I made the same ornament from the same kit as you last year and wanted another BUT couldn't remember the name of the company. So I went to Michael's and found this
http://shop.paperclay.com/Delight-air-dry-modeling-compound-3-oz-0411.htm
which is the same stuff as in that kit! It was enough to make two handprints and it was like maybe $5 or $6. I used a pen to poke holes in for ornament hanging and let it air dry for a few days! happy New Year Grizas!
