How to Make Salt Dough Ornaments

They are really easy and cheap to make.  You can make any design that your imagination can think of and you can leave them natural or you can decorate them with paint or embellishments.

For all of the ornaments, I used the below recipe and I baked them in the oven at 200 degrees fahrenheit for 2-3 hours.  This recipe will make quite a few ornaments, so if you only want to make a few then I suggest cutting the recipe in half. You can find the video tutorial here or at the bottom of this post.

Salt Dough Recipe (Can be halved)
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water

The first one in the video is the initial/monogram salt dough ornament.  I really love how this one turned out and I love that you can make these ornaments as personal as you want.

Christmas Table Setting

Christmas is over but I still wanted to share my Christmas table setting with you. I truly loved my table this year as it was so elegant and festive. My dad made the comment that it “feels like your eating at a rich persons house”. I’ll take that as a compliment because I was going for elegant and I do believe I achieved just that.  Just take a look for yourself and let me know what you think in the comments.

I had the most wonderful day with my family playing games, laughing and eating great food! My darling husband made the most delicious roast with potatoes and carrots. Also, we ate collard greens, green beans, spinach balls and macaroni and cheese. Oh, and pie! I can’t forget about the pie.

 I put together a video of me putting together my Christmas table too! You should check it out. If you do then leave me a comment on what is your favorite part of my tablescape. I would love to know.
