Posted by   + Show Post

Create keepsakes and memories for years to come by making salt dough ornaments. It's a fun way to have your family make unique ornaments that you can put on your tree year after year.

The possibilities for salt dough ornaments are endless. You can use cookie cutters or trace your child's hand to make hand print ornaments. You can find the recipe for salt dough ornaments here, as well as, directions how to make family faces ornaments!

We haven't made salt dough ornaments, but we have made homemade ornaments using baking soda and corn starch.

This year I am making felt birds for my mom's tree for the holidays.

 I made a hand print one year. I don't recall my children doing this and I didn't have recipe for it back then.  It's such a cute idea and had my children been young all over again, this would be an idea to do every year just to see how much they've grown.

We have not made the ornaments at home, but I helped her kindergarten class make cinnamon dough ornaments this year. I do give some homemade gifts, there are a few friends who expect Russian tea every year. This year I'm also doing homemade caramel sauce.
