Ornaments and Gift Tags!

This recipe is perfect because these ornaments normally smell weird!  Adding oils to them is brilliant and you're going to love this craft for the family.


DIY Essential Oil-Infused Salt Dough Christmas Ornaments

Supplies needed:
• 1 cup flour
• ½ cup salt
• ½ cup water
• Approximately 5 drops of essential oil—combination of Orange and Cinnamon Bark recommended
Kit oil: THIEVES
• Rolling pin
• Cookie cutters
• Baking sheet
• Paint, optional
• Ribbon

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Mix together flour and salt in a bowl, then stir in water and essential oils until smooth. Lightly flour countertop. Roll out dough until it’s approximately ¼ inch thick. Cut out ornaments in desired shapes, and don’t forget to include a small hole to string ribbon through. (A plastic straw or wooden skewer works great for this.) Transfer shapes to ungreased baking sheet and cook for 2-3 hours, until completely dry. Remove from oven and allow to cool. At this stage, ornaments may be painted or decorated. String with ribbon, and your ornaments are done!
