Creating projects and ornaments from salt dough has been around for quite a while. The timeless nature of this craft translates into many different seasons and gift ideas!
Today I have a guest on my blog who creates beautiful hand painted salt dough ornaments.
I also have a fun tutorial I found for a kids project on salt dough that can be made just for fun at the end of this post.
But first, say hello to the lovely artist who has been making these darling ornaments for 2 decades!
Hello! I'm Kathy, slightly obsessed, dreamer and creator of salt dough ornaments at Cookie Dough Creations.
The very first dough treasure was offered for sale in 1997 and I have been living and breathing salt dough ornaments ever since!
Our two shops specialize in gift Angels, baptism, wedding and shower favors but also feature a variety of Christmas, whimsical animals and dough ornaments for every season and holiday.
Each and every ornament is completely handcrafted by me, from the mixing bowl of flour, salt and assorted pantry staples to drying racks and the paint table.
As I sit here in our beautiful workshop just steps from the backdoor of our home in lovely Union Bridge I am surrounded by thousands of dough ornaments in various stages of completion.
On one hand it's a well run home based business, on the other, chaos. At any one point in time there are hundreds of completed designs that I've sold for years, finished, stocked and listed online, then add almost that many more designs that are only ideas swirling around in my head.
Some are partially started, scattered on tables and even more are just ideas jotted down on bits of paper that I'm constantly trying to bring to life.
There are never enough hours in each day but I am one lucky girl, the master of my very own domain .. living a dream.
Kathy, you work is simply beautiful! I always love art that comes straight from the heart like this.
And I can definitely empathize with the feeling of never having enough time in a day to create all those new ideas that pop into your head!
Remember to pin an image to come back to when you need that special custom gift next time!
And show her some love on Pinterest!
I also wanted to include a little side DIY here for your kiddos. Salt dough can be a fun pass time and way to create cute memories with your little's.
