This weekend I decided to make this season less stressful and make my own trimmings or many of them anyway. These salt dough ornaments are super simple and I love how they lend a Nordic nod to my tree this year.
Here's what you'll need:
4 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
1 1/2 cup of warm water
Knead the dough and roll out
Lightly flour your rolling pin and station. If you find your dough mixture gets a little too dry try adding in a small amount of warm water and toss around on your floured rolling station. When your dough ball feels dry again, continue to roll it out.
I used two sizes of stars and a candy stick to punch a hole through the dough because I knew I wanted to string them as ornaments.
*Tip; be sure to punch the hole all the way through the dough
I then placed all my stars on parchment paper and onto a baking sheet. I baked them on 250 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes.
After taking them out of the oven I let them cool and once they were cool enough to handle, I strung them using natural twine.
I love their simple and even rustic nature. This year was all about keeping things simple and really creating that hygge feel in our home. I think these were the perfect addition to our tree.
(please ignore my filthy rug) Ha!
