Salt Dough Ornies

Em and I have spent the past two weeks getting together and crafting... It has been great fun! This week we made salt dough ornies! Of course we stuck with a fall theme!

Pumpkins, candy corn, and acorns!
I love how they turned out!
I think I am going to decorate a FALL tree, like my Valentine one...

Salt Dough Recipe:
1 cup salt
2 cups flour
1 cup water
Mix well, form ornies, place on a cookie sheet
bake 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.


* Added, form the dough, bake it and paint it afterwards.

Hi! Your ornaments are adorable! I'd love to try these! I'm wondering though, how long they last for you? Is there any special way you store them for the next year, if possible? ~tina
