How do you make cookie cutter ornaments?
- Choose patterned papers or color-photocopy pictures onto card stock. Trace cutter on top; cut out. Dab white craft glue along cutter's edge. Press paper in place; let dry.
- Thread narrow ribbon through needle; poke between paper and cutter, and wrap ribbon around top of cutter. Slip a bead over ribbon's ends; knot.
Similarly, you may ask, can you spray paint salt dough ornaments?
You can paint the entire ornament or partial . . . and I recommend acrylic paint. After that you can do one of two things. You can seal the ornaments with Mod Podge (giving them a few coats) or you can use a spray sealer.
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
- Combine the flour, salt and water; mix well and knead for 10 minutes. Roll out on a lightly floured surface.
- Cut into desired shapes and make holes for hanging. Bake for 30 minutes; allow to cool.
- Decorate with poster paints or tube paints.
Similarly, it is asked, how do you preserve salt dough ornaments?
Knead the dough, freeze it, then bake it for several hours and, once cooled, they'll be ready for decorating with cookie cutters, microbeads, craft paint, and glitter for extra sparkle. You can paint a coat of glossy decoupage glue over the entire ornament to seal and protect it, and to give it a shiny finish.
To make air dry clay, whisk together baking soda, cornstarch, and water in a pot until the mixture is smooth. If you want colored clay, add a few drops of food coloring to the mixture. Next, heat the dough over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring it constantly so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot.
