Everyone loves crafts, and making homemade crafts can be fun!  Just in time before the holidays, whether it be Halloween or Christmas, making crafts at home with this easy Salt Dough Recipe can be a lot of fun! 

Here’s what you will need to get started:
1 Cup of Salt
1 Cup of Flour
1/2 Cup of Water (you can add more if needed)

In a large bowl, combine the salt and flour, make a hole in the center and pour in the water.  Knead until smooth and shape into a ball.  For any unused dough, wrap in plastic or store in an airtight container.  Hint: To get a softer dough you can add more flour, adding more salt will give your dough a more granulous effect.  You can also add food coloring to your dough, or leave the dough uncolored so you can paint your project after it has dried.  To dry your project, you can just let it air dry or bake it at 200 degrees.  Once dry, you can paint your project, and then finish it with clear varnish. 

Also, you can roll out your dough and use your cookie cutters to make ornaments!  Now get creative!  Make some Christmas ornaments that you can attach to your Christmas presents that are personally made by “You”.  (Remember to make a small hole in your ornament so you can attach it to your package and the recipient can hang your ornament on their tree)  You can also roll out your dough and make “initials” and paint them for a more creative craft idea!  Whatever you wish to make, just be creative and have fun!
