Hello! Over the weekend Justin and I tried our hand at making cinnamon salt dough ornaments, something we both have not done since elementary school. We had such a fun time, I decided to write a post and share the recipe that worked for us. A few I found online the dough did not end up being very dough like, but with some adjustments, I think we got it right! This is a fun and easy DIY for both kids and adults! I don’t want Elle to ever grow up, however I cannot wait to do these fun activities with her! She supervised from her high-chair and helped pick the shapes 😉
We have a tiny tree in our kitchen, that was lacking ornaments. I knew I wanted to stick to a kitchen theme and tried to find kitchen ornaments (aprons, gingerbread cookies, etc), but that got a bit pricey. So we had the idea to make “cookies” for ornaments. Our favorite cookie cutters! While baking these the house smelled so good! Even though my scent has not fully returned since having the big C in October, I could still smell the cinnamon filling the house!
Let me know if you try making these cinnamon salt dough ornaments! Have fun!
Cinnamon Salt Dough Ornaments
- 1 + 3/4 cup Flour
- 1 cup Salt
- 2 cup Warm Water
- 1/4 cup Cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
- Mix together water and salt, then add the four and cinnamon.
- Knead together the dough with your hands.
- Roll out dough and use cookie cutters to create desired shapes.
- Place on cookie sheet and use a toothpick or straw to create holes so you can add string to hang them.
- Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours.
- Add string or ribbon to hang ornaments
- If the mix is too dry you can add more water, or if too watery you can add more flour.
- I recommend sprinkling some flour on the surface that the dough will be rolled on to reduce sticking to the surface.
