Recipe for Salt Dough:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 cuater

Stir together all thrngredients until a dough forms. Kneading the dough a couple times can help make it smoother.

Roll out the dough 1/4 inch thick and cut out egg shapes.

Place the cut-outs on the parchment covered baking sheets. Remember to make a hole so you can hang the ornaments — a straw works perfectly!

Bake at 250F for 2 hours.

Directions for Salt Dough Easter Eggs
Once the shapes are adequately baked, dried and then thoroughly cooled, it is time to paint. Spray paint is faster and easier, but acrylics work just as well.

Allow the paint to thoroughly dry. Use paint pens to add polka dots or lines of decorations to the eggs. Optional: To further protect the color and design, add a clear coat sealer.

Loop twine or ribbon through the holes and hang.

Hooray! Your Salt Dough Easter Eggs are finished. It’s feeling more spring like already!
