A Very Pinteresting Christmas Day 2- Snow Family Ornament


Remember yesterday when I told you I had extra dough to make another ornament? My little "helping" hand made another tree ornament for his Mommy. 

I saw this pin and loved it. Of course it is a private blog and doesn't come with directions. So I took half of the Salt Dough Ornament Recipe (see below) and had Baby E. impress his hand. I let it air dry for 5 days and then, sealed with acrylic seal. Then I painted it white. I used a fine tip sharpie marker/pen to make the snow men and acrylic paint to give the snow people their hats, scarves and buttons. 

Salt Dough Recipe
1/2 C Salt
1/2 C Flour
1/4 water (can add more if needed)
Add all ingredients together in a bowl, knead until dough forms 

Form dough into shape desired. Don't forget to poke a hole in the ornament so you can hang it! It is better to let air dry, make sure you air dry on both sides! Seal before painting and after. I use acrylic seal before and Mod Podge after. 

Baby E of course has five members in his family so this ornament is perfect.
