How to Make Salt Dough

Materials:

  •  2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Mixing bowl

Instructions:

  1. Mix together salt, flour, and water in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Knead until mixture reaches a doughy consistency and add food coloring if desired. Use immediately or store in an airtight container for later use.
  3. Shape salt dough according to the salt dough craft instructions and bake until hard. Baking times for each craft tutorial may vary, but a good rule is to bake salt dough ornaments at a low heat for a few hours. Example: bake at 175 degrees Farenheit for 4 hours, turning ornaments every 30 minutes.
  4. When the salt dough is cool, start decorating!
