ABC Salt Dough


by Amanda Formaro

Making gifts from salt dough is fun and creative. Make these easy salt dough alphabet letters for your teacher. Whether you simply add a magnet or your glue them to something more elaborate like a wall plaque, she will appreciate the work you put into them!

What You Need

1/4 cup salt
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup water
alphabet cookie cutters
cookie sheet
acrylic paint in primary colors
acrylic sealer spray

What you do

Preheat oven 250 degrees F.

Mix together the flour, salt and water to make a soft dough. If it's too sticky, add small amounts of flour until pliable. Be careful not to add too much as your creations will crack if the dough is too dry!

Roll the dough out, or press it with your fingers, to about 1/2" thick.

Cut ornaments out with cookie cutters and place on cookie sheet, or you can place dough on cookie sheet and cut them out directly on the sheet.
Bake for 2 1/2 hours.

Remove from oven and let cool.

Paint each letter with a different color acrylic paint and let dry. repeat with another coat if needed.

Spray with acrylic sealer spray.
