Diva Decorating: Salt Ornaments…

Years ago I use to have all the kids in the neighborhood over and have an ornament party.  We’d bake these and send them home for their trees.  Sometimes a dradle or two.  I had one of a little piggy girl with holly in her hair for 20 years.  They are fun, creative and the kids have ownership in their own trees decorations.  The neighbor hood moms loved me because they didn’t have to clean up the mess.  That is what plastic table cloths are for ….Have fun decorating.  Namaste, The Queen Cronista

SALT Ornament Dough


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Combine the flour, salt and water; mix well and knead for 10 minutes. Roll out on a lightly floured surface.
  3. Cut into desired shapes and make holes for hanging. You may want to poke the backs with toothpicks a little to keep from puffing. Bake for 30 minutes; allow to cool.
  4. Decorate with poster paints or tube paints. Allow to dry and spray with clear polyurethane on both sides to preserve. Use ribbon or yarn pieces to hang.
