Sorry this post is so late getting up…. I have not been feeling well at all today. I sent Dilly to her Nanny’s house for a sleepover so I don’t make her sick.  Sugar and I have just been hanging out and resting.  The other day we made some cute Christmas ornaments and I thought I would share how to make them.

Salt Dough Footprint Ornament

Ingredients & Supplies:
Salt
Flour
Straw
Rolling Pin
Round Cookie Cutter
Baking Sheet
Antiquing Paint
Old cloth
Matte Finish Spray
Ribbon

Directions
  1.  Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  2. Mix 2 coffee mugs of flour and 1 coffee mug of salt together.
  3. Add 1 mug of warm water and mix together until dough is formed.
  4. Knead dough for about ten minutes. This removed are pockets and the coarseness of the salt.
  5. Roll out to about 1/2″ thick and use cookie cutter to cut out circles.
  6. Place on baking sheet and press your munchkins foot into the dough.
  7. Use straw to make a hole for the ribbon to thread through.
  8. Bake for approximately 2 hours or until hard.
  9. After the ornament has cooled completely apply antiquing paint to entire surface.
  10. Use old cloth to wipe off excess paint.
  11. Once completely dry spray with Matte Finish.
  12. Once dry thread ribbon through and tie in a pretty bow.
You can also do this with hand prints.  I  made some Dilly hand print ornaments as well!
