I love how these salt dough Christmas baubles have turned out! So easy to make and just wow!!!

I wanted to make a salt dough surface big enough to paint onto. I have gigantic cookie cutters, so I made these circles and then turned them into big painted Christmas tree scenes.

Salt dough is our favorite go-to when it comes to Christmas ornaments. Air-dry clay is also a winner – it not only dries and never goes soggy, but it also drys light in weight, meaning you don’t end up hanging heavy decorations onto the tree.

How to make your Christmas baubles:

First you need to make your salt dough baubles and let them dry. Follow all the instructions here…

Once your ornaments are completely dry, paint your Christmas scenes. We painted two different versions of winter trees, but there are so many wonderful ideas out there! Kids will love to paint snowmen or decorated Christmas trees.

Once your paint is completely dry coat your ornaments with a sealer or acrylic spray. This will ensure that they last!

Once that is dry you can add string or twine to hang them up. We added some wooden beads – with a knot between each one.
