How to make salt dough.
It’s far easier then you could ever imagine, here in the latest installment of the video advent calendar I show you how to make salt dough. All you need is plain flour, salt, (ordinary table salt) and water.
- 1 cup of plain flour
- 1/2 a cup of salt
- 1/2 cup water (added slowly, more or less as necessary)
- Biscuit cutters
- Rolling pin
- Extra flour for dusting the surface and pin
- Bright paint
- Pencil or straw for making holes
- Thread for hanging
Once mixed and kneaded you can turn it in to tree decorations by rolling it out and cutting with biscuit cutters. Make sure you make a hole at the top for hanging, either with a pencil or straw.
Then let it dry, either by air, (might take a day or two), or by baking in a very low oven (120 degrees ish) for 2 – 3 hours.
Store in an airtight tin or box, the decorations in the vid I made about 8 years ago, as long as they don’t get damp, they should last and last!
