Making Christmas ornaments is a wonderful way to spend time with your little ones – no matter how old they are. And Christmas decorating is about the process. So today I’m sharing my recipe for making cinnamon salt dough ornaments. The process combines baking and crafting — and the perfect excuse to gather around the kitchen table and create! They’re incredibly easy to make and only require 4 ingredients.
Cinnamon Salt Dough Ornaments Recipe
Prep time: 20 mins. Cook time: 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In large bowl, mix flour, salt, water, and cinnamon until smooth. The more cinnamon you add, the darker the color of the finished ornament.
- Roll out the dough to desired thickness. Since this dough does not rise when cooked, be sure to roll out the dough to the desired thickness you’d like the finished ornament to be. Cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Poke a hole in the top of each ornament using a straw (this is how you’ll hang them with a ribbon after they cook).
- Lay cut shapes on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until the dough is completely dry (2 to 2.5 hours).
- Once ornaments have cooled completely, string a ribbon through each ornament and hang on the Christmas tree.
- Note: These ornaments are for decorating, not for eating.
Hang these ornaments on a tree, a wreath, or decorate the place settings at your table.
