Salt Dough Christmas OrnamentsRemember the salt dough recipe I posted a few days ago? I made mine with sugar instead of salt today! I promised the kids we’d make ornaments and then realized we were almost out of salt. So, I pulled out brown sugar and prayed for the best.

We mixed the dough well, added a bit extra flour, flattened it, using our hands and , using cookie cutters, cut different Christmas shapes out of it. We then placed the “cookies” in the oven (400 degrees F) for about 5-7 minutes, to let them harden. The sugar instead of salt part didn’t seem to cause any issues.

We then painted the “cookies” on both sides and let them dry. They became simple and beautiful Christmas ornaments!

My camera just broke, so image credit: Tinkerlab (great instructions on that site too.)
