    A few years ago, the girls and I made salt dough ornaments together. I had fond memories of making them as a child and wanted to share that with them. After the girls talked us into their own personal Christmas trees this year, I realized that we needed an abundance of shatterproof ornaments.

    We spent the morning making color salt dough ornaments with a friend. It’s a beautiful way to decorate their trees, without a lot of effort or expense. We mixed a soft pink, light blue, mint green and yellow and pressed away with cookie cutters.
