Salt Dough Ornaments

Every year my friend hosts an ornament exchange and every year I go through probably 5 ideas before I settle on what I am going to make for my ornaments.  I make a few ornaments and end up hating them so I scrap the idea and move onto something different.  Ha ha.  Well, this year was no different.  I finally
 decided on making some salt dough ornaments and I am happy with the results.  So here they are!
 Started with making stars from this recipe:  1/2 C. Salt, 1/2 C. warm water, 1 C. flour.  Cut out shapes.  Let dry completely.

 I ended up painting mine, but next time to save time and to make them look more like gingerbread cookies and not chocolate ones, I think I will add food coloring and cinnamon to the dough.
 I used white puff paint and sprinkled glitter while it was still wet.
 Tied a little ribbon through the holes. 
And here is the result!  Happy Holidays!

Burlap NOEL Banner

I had so much fun making this burlap banner.  I first painted the burlap with white paint and let it dry.  I cut out the letters from a gold glitter cardstock and strung the whole thing from jute. I'm getting so excited for the holidays!

Also, check out my new items in my etsy shop!  There are some really fun hair accessories that are perfect for the holidays.
