Materials Needed:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 cup water
  • parchment paper
  • rolling pin
  • alphabet cookie cutters
  • pencil
  • spray paint (in desired colors)
  • glitter glue pens

Mix Salt Dough

Mix together flour, salt and water to create salt dough. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough approximately 1/4-inch thick on parchment paper.

Cut-Out Shapes

Push cookie cutter letter stamp-side down so the letter indents into dough. Flip cookie cutter over and press down, cutting around dough. Peel away excess dough from letters.

Add Hole for Ornament Hooks

Using the tip of a pencil, burrow a hole into the top of each letter for ornament hooks.
