How to make Salt Dough Handprint Ornaments. Probably one of the most sentimental gifts you can give for Christmas, Grandparent’s Day, or any other day!
These salt dough handprint ornaments that I did last year, turned out to be one of my most treasured ornaments. I thought I would share them with you all because these are extremely sentimental, and I highly recommend you all to do these for your little ones.
Here’s my inspiration for the keepsake handprint:
1 cup salt
Large Mixing Bowl
Water to moisten
just a tad of oil
a small rolling pin or wooden dowel
It was easier for me to lightly grease my baking sheet with oil & form & roll out on the cookie sheet. Once you have your form made, I suggest you use your straw to make a whole in it before you have your kids emboss their hand print.
Here’s the picture of all 3 finished. They each have their own hand print & then the one combined. You can paint or gloss however you’d like. For me personally, I wanted it to look as organic & natural as possible.
My main goal was to allow the Salt Dough Handprint Ornaments to shine naturally.
