Salt Dough Halloween Decorations

We love salt dough here in TheMadHouse. It is an inexpensive and fun way of making and modeling. I picked up a set of cookie cutters from tesco for 99p. They are small, but they are fine until we fine some larger ones and have a few spare pennies.

Basic recipe

2 cups of plain flour
1 cup of salt
1 cup of warm water

I also add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to make the final decoration harder.

Mix the flour, salt and lemon juice adding water until you get a firm dough. Then knead the dough. The more you kneed the more pliable the dough will become.

We basically roll out the dough and cut out our decorations with a cookie cutter. Then use a straw to cut out a hole for ribbon.

We cook our dough at the lowest oven temperature for 3 hours, then leave overnight before we paint and decorate them.



I dont have any pictures of the actual rolling, cutting and painting process, as I had my hands full with the MiniMads!!

But here is what we have done with them. We have made single decorations for the fairy twigs.



We had lots of fun sticking on little sequins, which were actually table confetti from the pound shop.




The rest of them had holes that were far too small to thread with the garden twine, so we just popped them on the dresser. Kind of like a little Halloween display.



When I collected MiniMad from Preschool yesterday afternoon, one of his teachers told me that he was going to make her a badge to go with the stickers she already had. So we used one of the decorations and added some ribbons from my stash and then popped a safety pin through the ribbon.



Just a little something from MiniMad.
