Frozen Olaf Salt Dough Ornament
Wouldn't it be nice to have one of these made of your child every year and watch the growth? Or their little hands in one??
Frozen Olaf Salt Dough Ornament - Easy Christmas ornament made from your child's footprint!
- 1 Cup Of Salt
- 2 Cups Of Flour
- 1 Cup Of Water
- Permanent Marker
First you’ll mix your flour, salt, and water in a mixing bowl. If the dough is too dry you can add more water. After kneading the dough you’ll flatten it out with a rolling pin. The kids love helping with this part! Next have your child place their foot in the dough. I cut out circles big enough for their foot and sat them in baking sheets lined with parchment paper so they could do this step a little easier. Next you can trace around their footprint leaving a little border around the print so that you have enough room for the hands to be painted on. Poke a hole through the top so that you can hang them when your done and bake these for four hours at 250f*.
Once these are done and they've cooled for a few hours you can start painting! Using acrylic paint you’ll paint the footprint white and add little cheeks to give it that olaf look! I added in a blue border and to make the eyes and mouth, I found the easiest way was to use permanent marker.
