A Handmade Christmas with Salt Dough Ornaments

As the last of the Christmas holiday decor is being put away, I couldn't resist sharing this fun and easy project that was great to share with friends and family this past holiday season. 

Initially inspired by a blog post by Cotton Stem on the salt dough ornaments that Erin and her daughters created at Thanksgiving time, I rolled the cinnamon infused dough and sipped on wine as Christmas tunes were playing in the background. 

As I was using the cookie cutters that I already had on hand, my only plan for the ornaments was to use them as gift tags for the holidays. It was only after they were made that the inspiration struck to incorporate them as embellishments on handcrafted candles that were given away to friends and family. 

After the ornaments were baked and cooled, a thin ribbon was added. Honestly, adding the ribbon to the ornaments was the most time consuming part of this whole project.

Frosted floral vases, that I happened to have an abundance of (benefit of being a florist), were embellished with sweet ribbon that I found at Hobby Lobby and  tied in a way to hold three star ornaments.  The vases were then filled with a layer of Epsom salt (looks like snow) and a glass votive candle was nestled inside. 

Carefully packed with tissue and tied with a bow, these gifts were fun and easy to make and were given away and shared with love. 

Salt Dough Ornament Recipe

2 cups flour
1 cup table salt
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut desired shapes with cookie cutters. Use a skewer, straw or coffee stirrer to create a hole for hanging purposes. Bake at 300 degrees for about an hour or until the ornaments are hard. After the ornaments have cooled off, add ribbon and paint if desired. 

Share, enjoy and be creative!~
