Salt dough Christmas decorations Part 1.

I kept seeing this recipe and instructions for Father Christmas handprint salt dough decorations appearing on my timeline .
 I nought I would give it a go , as we had all the things needed in the cupboard .  We made some star salt dough decorations last year aswell . Although little miss wasn't as involved last year .

So off we set making them !

We had great fun , little miss loved pouring and mixing !  I found it difficulty to apply the right amount of pressure to get the handprint . As didn't wana hurt little miss and out her off !

We also made some star decorations with the left over dough .

They were only on the oven an hour , I think I must have had it too hot as they went brown . But we are going to try painting them anyways . Then try another batch another day :-).

Look out for blog post two , which will include the painting of our decorations !


  1. What a lovely idea! Something to treasure for years to come,

  4. We did this last year, but with a hand print (his hand is too big now, boo hoo :() and we didn't paint them - they looked great. Am looking forward to seeing how these ones are decorated :) xx

  5. Salt dough is so versatile. We have quite a collection of salt dough Christmas decorations. If you store them carefully they will lst for years. #LetKidsBeKids

  6. What a fantastic idea, and a lovely keepsake. Added to my list of things to do.
