Make Salt-Dough Easter Decorations

Salt-Dough is a fun and thrifty way to make some Easter Decorations especially good as an alternative to painting eggs when eggs are difficult to get at the moment. 


Plain flour (about 250g)
Table salt (about 125g)
Water (about 125ml)
Baking Paper

How to make

  1. Preheat the oven to its lowest setting – approx 120 C
  2. Mix the flour, salt and water till it comes together into a ball
  3. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and make your decorations. You could make egg shapes, or you could roll it out (¼ inch thick works well) and use cutters, if you want to hang the decorations remember to make a hole to hang a string through.
  4. Bake your decorations for 3 hours or until hard
  5. Leave to cool then paint. Acrylics or Paint-Pens work well but we’re sure a bit of glue and glitter will also do the job. You can seal with some varnish if you like to make them more hard-wearing.
