Salt Dough Recipe

Salt dough is a fun and cheap way to make some great gifts whether this be for birthdays, Mother's Day or even Christmas.

3 ingredients is all you need!

  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 1 cup of salt
  • 1 cup of water

Add the plain flour and salt to a bowl

Now add the water - small amounts at a time and mix.

Knead the dough for around 10 minutes.

Once ready you can roll out your dough and cut in to different shapes and gifts. 

You can air dry your salt dough or bake it on the oven at the LOWEST temperature possible (at the bottom of the oven too).

I did it too high on my first attempt and it made it bubble up!

As a guide for the time you would need to cook items for - think half an hour for every 1/4 inch of thickness. 

However always best to keep an eye on each item - it can take hours as you want them to get completely dry throughout.
