Salt Dough Ornaments




I really wanted to make handprints of the boys, and after a failed attempt with a bad batch of Sculpey I bought at Michael's, I decided to try my hand at salt dough. It was more difficult than I had anticipated to get the dough soft, rolled out, cut into discs, and convince the boys to let me press their hands into said discs hard enough to make an impression before the dough started hardening. Ah, the joys of crafting with toddlers and infants....The handprints aren't as deep as I would like and the discs aren't as smooth, but that gives them character, right?
