Christmas Salt Dough Decorations

As a sentimental old sod, I decided last year that it would be our family tradition to purchase a bauble or Christmas decoration type thing which we'd hang on our tree up until Freddie was old enough to fly the nest. When the time eventually came, he would take said decorations with him and live in domestic bliss with an equally lovely female (who obviously mother has approved of) and together they wil carry on the tradition with the little Freddie Jr's of their own. Or so that is the plan. 

This year however I decided that we'd make our own for an extra oomph of sentimentality and also to earn some serious parenting brownie points to counteract the fact that we had both been in our pyjamas all day. 

As much as it pains me to admit, I aren't particularly 'arty farty' but these decorations were incredibly easy to make with minimal fuss or mess! 

Here is how we made our Homemade Salt Dough Christmas decorations.

Mix: 1 cup of flour

1/2 cup of salt
1/2 cup of water

And here is Freddie having a wonderful time, being an ever so compliant 15 month old decorating his salt dough with precision to rival Van Gough.

And as any mother of a 15 month old will know, this picture is a complete set up and within precisely 17 seconds he'd eaten the paint brush and smeared paint on all 4 corners of the living room!
