One morning last week Sebastian, Katharina, and I made salt dough ornaments. The following morning we painted them, left them to dry, and later strung them with twine.

Below is the recipe we used. This was such a fun project and Sebastian and Katharina were a great age as they love using cookie cutters and painting. We'll look forward to doing this every Christmas to come.

Salt Dough Ornaments

1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 250ºF/120ºC. Mix all ingredients until well combined. Dust surface with flour and roll dough to approximately 1/4 inch thickness. Add more flour if dough seems too sticky.

Place cut out dough on cookie sheet and use a straw to cut hole in top.

Place ornaments in oven and bake 2-3 hours, or until completely dry. 

Once cooled, decorate as desired with paint and/or glitter.


  1. I love how Katharina is covered in paint, and Sebastian is clean as a whistle. :)
