Salt Dough Christmas Decorations

here's a recipe which adds acrylic white paint to the flour and salt mix which makes for a bright white finish. I have to say though I love the natural cream colour and these decorations below are so beautiful, simply decorated with red pen. See here at Katy Elliot's blog..

Well, we were snowed in today, school was cancelled - so what better way to spend the 2nd day of advent than making christmas decorations. I remember my aunt using salt dough to make the most beautiful little sculptures, and in Switzerland this is an extremely well used craft. There is a simplicity and purity to this salty ivory, slightly crumbly finish and it works beautifuly for christmas decorations.. all you need is plain flour, salt and water. Great for cheap, effective and charming decoration..
