Preserve your child's handprints, footprints and more with this salt dough ornament recipe. These handmade keepsakes will become family treasures!


Ingredients

4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup salt
1.5 cups water
Clear Glaze Finish or Mod Podge
Instructions

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees F.
Combine all of your ingredients and knead for 10 minutes. If your dough is too dry add a little bit more water in and continue to knead.
Roll out the dough to a thickness that you'd like your salt dough ornament to be.
Using a large cookie cutter, cut out different shapes for your salt dough ornament.
Have your child place their hand into the salt dough ornament.
Using a straw, make a hole in the top for where you want to hang your salt dough ornament.
Bake for 1-2 hours. If your ornaments are still doughy, put back in for another hour. (It will depend on your thickness how long you need to bake for. The thinner ornaments will take less time but thicker may take more).
If you encounter too much puffing, roll out thinner ornaments and this will help reduce the puffing. If the ornament is still a bit doughy, bake for longer or let sit out a few days to harden before decorating.
Once cool, you can decorate by painting with acrylic or kids paint.

To make the hand glittery, fill the handprint with glue then sprinkle glitter on top of the glue, shake off the excess and let it dry.

Spray with a clear glaze finish
