100 Joys ~ #5~ New Ornaments

Joy #5

I love to create new ornaments every year.  But there have been some years where I just haven't gotten around to it.  This year, however, was not one of them.  I have made some Salt Dough Ornaments this year.  They are super easy to make and you can decorate them in so many ways.  This is definitely a recipe that the kids can help mix together, cut out and decorate.  And trust me...they will bring you lots of joy!

I found the recipe here: BHG.  They have great ideas if you ever need them.  All you need is 1/2 cup Salt, 1 cup Flour and 1/2 cup Water.  Mix these ingredients until sticky.  Roll until it's about 1/4 inch thick and cut out snowflake shapes with cookie cutters Or another other cookie cutter shape that you want.  You can even freehand them as well. Don't forget to use a skewer to press a hole for hanging. Bake for 4 hours in a 200 degree oven. When cool, draw hearts, squiggles, and dots with a marking pen.  I'll take pictures later with the others that I've decorated.


What are your 100 Joys this Season?  What joy is God putting in front of you to see?  Blog about your 100 Joys and come back here every Sunday to link up!

Thanks for the recipe! I have a few from when I was in preschool, but have wanted to make more.

A couple of tips: they last longer if you coat them with a varnish - even modpodge works well. Also, storing them with a few whole cloves helps to keep the bugs out.
