Today I’ve cooked up something a little different – treats for your tree! These salt dough ornaments look and smell just like real gingerbread, and they make a sweet homemade gift. Best of all, they keep indefinitely, so you can use them each year to decorate your tree.
You’ll find the complete instructions along with step-by-step photos here on the Etsy Blog!
Sweet image! Wonderfully captured…
These are adorable!
Hi Heather, i would love to gift my friends your second book for xmas, is it available? I don't see it on Amazon?
I love every thing you do! Merry Christmas and I am off to your Etsy site!
Very nice!!!! I love how you've made a stylish version of this childhood classic. Beautiful work as always 🙂
I remember doing these as a child while living in Germany. Brings back sweet memories.
I remember making these when I was kid! It would be a really fun project for my classroom….but it will have to wait until next year. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Can we cut the recipe in half and it still come out good? We just want to do 2 paw print ornaments.
Yes, the recipe can be halved. It will still make more dough than you’ll need, I think.
There’s sure to be a salty residue on paws afterward, so I’d recommend wiping the paws with a damp cloth immediately after taking the imprint.
Hi! These look delightful but when I follow the link in the article that says “here at the Etsy blog” it just takes me to a “uh-oh – sorry not found” page on on Etsy. Is there another way to get there? Thanks so much!
Here’s a link.
The Etsy Journal has done some re-arranging with their content! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll update the link in the blog post.
