old fashioned Salt-Dough ornament recipe and a GIVEAWAY

November 4, 2011 by momm7540
::A LINK TO WHATEVERWEDNESDAY LINK PARTY IS AT THE END OF THIS POST::
I remember salt-dough Christmas ornaments from when I was little. I never really knew what they were until , around, five years ago. I happened upon the recipe , online. Of course I  never wrote it down.
Starting new Christmas traditions with my kids , salt-dough ornaments had to part of that tradition. Along with other meaningful, handmade ornaments. A true country style Christmas tree wouldn’t be that with out them.
I started playing around with ingredients and here is the recipe I decided works best:
“Pin” this recipe for later!
I absolutely adore this recipe. It works great for Christmas ornaments, an art project for kids on a rainy day, imprinting your babies feet/hand prints , or even something as simple as a “to , from” gift tag like I made here.
Using a regular rubber stamp I imprinted snow flakes and other designs. I also laid, on others, a piece of fabric over the top and rolled it and rolled over the fabric with a rolling pin to get a natural linen look.
The possibilities are endless.
After you allow the dough to dry , mine took 24 hours – air drying. I took a fine piece of sand paper and smoothed out the edges .  Don’t worry, they should be very sturdy!
I have some ornaments that have been preserved for years without any deterioration , by simply, storing them in a ziploc bag .  You could also spray them with clear spray paint to seal them even better.
You and your family will have a blast making personalized ornaments or tags. All while creating memories and traditions.
Before you make yours, How about I GIVE you some . For free!
I am giving away 6 FREE salt-dough tags!

1 distressed white snow flake tag , 1 natural snow flake tag

  12. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues
    with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any
    methods to stop hackers?

  13. I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be
    working with? I’m having some small security issues with my
    latest site and I would like to find something more safe.
    Do you have any solutions?

  14. Hi there to every body, it’s my first go to see
    of this blog; this webpage includes awesome
    and truly excellent information for visitors.
