DIY Nordic Christmas Ornaments

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.

I've made these before and I love them, so I decided to make them again this year along with that beaded garland that cost me under $3 to make, you can catch that DIY post here.

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!

Happy Holidays!
