Making Christmas ornaments brings Holiday Joy

By Samantha Tate-Anderson

The Holiday season is here and we've been slowly decorating our house and getting festive! With a toddler running around, I've been trying to have him be as much a part of the process as possible. This year we decided to add a few Salt-Dough Ornaments to the tree.

It's a simple process that the kids fully enjoy being apart of! Once they are dry, a few drops of essential oils can be added to each ornament. We used doTERRA's Holiday Joy and the house smells just like Christmas!

Salt-Dough Recipe
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water

 

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees and then mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Once all ingredients are mixed together and the dough has formed a ball, flour your surface and roll dough out into a ¼ inch thickness.
  • Cut the ornaments out with holiday cookie cutters and using a straw, add a hole in the top so you can string them once baked or dry.
  • Bake for 2-3 hours or until completely dried. If you would like, you can air dry for a day or two to ensure they keep their whiteness.
  • Once dry and strung, add a couple drops of doTERRA Holiday Joy for a lovely scent.
