Day 4 of Crafting to Christmas



For Day 4 of Crafting to Christmas we decided to make a few more ornaments. I came across this great recipe for the quickest salt dough recipe ever on Rainy Day Mum. The recipe we used last year I wasn't a fan of. The ornaments took forever to dry and become hard. But this recipe is awesome and only calls for three ingredients. 
Another plus is that the dough dries in the microwave in less then three minutes. But be WARNED: Watch the dough when its in the microwave because it will burn if your not careful. I found that smaller pieces can take like 30 seconds and the larger pieces take like three minutes. Just depends on how strong your microwave is. 
We used Christmas cookie cutters and some cutters from Virginia's play doh collection to cut out the shapes. I did forget to punch holes at the top to hang in the ornaments. But I figure I will just hot glue string to the back to hang them on our tree. I had Virginia paint the dough with acrylic paint and afterwards I covered them with Mod Podge. I love how quick the recipe was and how easy the dough was to roll out and work with. We definitely will be using this recipe again.
