Great attack Sweets!  I had not thought to stamp salt dough ornaments!  They look really pretty!

Those are lovely, especially the ones with the trees on them. Is your assistant available for hire? He's obviously a hard worker.

That is a great idea! I use it in my class sometimes, but never used cookie cutters!

I can add a tip:
If you have the salt dough almost ready, you could add some food colour or paint to colour your dough. That way it all has a nice colour! The more you paint you add, the more intense the colour will be. Smiley

Gotta eat that little helper.

What is the usual life of salt dough? Never seen it done this way, and makes me wonder about other applications.

These are just about 1,000 times prettier than the salt dough ornaments I made as a kid! They are fantastic!!

I might have to start holiday crafting right away because I really want to try these. Thank you for the tute!

If you spray it with clear coat paint, it can last for years. 

I don't know how long if you don't though.

Wow, thank you all so much for the replies!  So glad you eat the attack and my little helper, hehe.

I'll reply to some of the questions this weekend.

Thanks for the great attack.  Little Sweets is the cutest ornament maker ever. 

Does anyone know how well water based paints/inks work on salt dough?  I'm thinking of making some with my not quite 2 year old and am worried about both the mess as well as her poor tummy if we use acrylics etc.
