Salt Dough Creations

Around the same time that I did the Playdough post (I’ll leave the link for that at the bottom of the page), Isa and I got creative and thought we’d try making some salt dough magnets. He really loved rolling the dough and cutting out the different letter shapes and was so excited to see the end result whilst we were making them. They are extremely inexpensive to make, and  very verstaile, you can turn them into magnets like we did or you can pierce a hole in the top before baking so you can hang them up as decorations. You could also make them as gift tags too and I have even seen others create salt dough medals. The possibilities are endless.

To make these salt dough creations you will need

  • 225g Flour
  • 112g Salt
  • 100ml Cold Water

First of all you need to mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl. Then add the water in stages till you get a good consistency dough to work with (you may not need to add all of the water) as you don’t want the dough to be sticky. If the dough is too dry and crumbly add a little more water.

Roll out the dough and cut out shapes as desired, if you are creating ornaments to hang use a straw to pierce a hole near the top of your shape.

Leave to air dry on a tray for around a week or bake in the oven at 120°c for around two and a half to three hours. You could even try putting them in the microwave for 3 minutes if you’re really pressed for time ( I haven’t tried this method myself though). You will know when they are done as they will feel firm, hollow and dry.

Once they are all baked and cooled you can now add your piant and glitter. 

And there you have it, your very own salt dough creations.
