Month of December, Arcata Library. Make A Salt Dough Ornament (Drop in During Open Hours)

Monday, December 11, 2023

Salt dough is a simple way to make a handmade ornament that looks like a cookie! There are salt dough and decoration bits waiting for you at the Arcata library. Press a cookie cutter into a patted-flat piece of dough and decorate to make a take-and-bake ornament.

Salt Dough Ornaments

An unbaked salt dough star and tree decorated with beads and jingle bells.

Pat your dough nice and thin, use the cookie cutter you choose, and decorate. Make a hole for stringing.

Take them home to bake at 200 degrees for 2 hours. They are beautiful and will last for years!

Want to make your own dough for more ornaments?

Mix 1 cup of white flour, 1/2 cup of salt, and 1/2 cup of water and knead until smooth. Roll it to about 1/8 of an inch thick. Bake as above.

A cat, dog, and bunny with a red line across their circle to remind you this is not for pets!

Do keep salt dough ornaments away from pets that might be attracted to the salt and the toasty flour smell.
