Counting the days to Valentine's Day
Salt Dough Hearts and craft paint.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup salt
- 1 cup cold water
Mix the salt and flour in a large bowl. Slowly add water and knead the dough on a flat surface. If the dough is too sticky add some flour. If it cracks while rolling out thinly add some water and try again. Just like baking the dough is affected by weather conditions.
Poke a hole using a straw. I allow mine to air dry for a few days, turning them over to ensure they dry evenly. Once they are completely dry then paint. The number of coats depends on the paint.
You may bake them at 200F until dry. They may form bubbles & discoloring.
FYI you can do this for any holiday. I made shamrocks for St Patty's day too.
