Another day, another Blogmas. I must admit that this December is going by so quickly I’m hardly keeping track as it is. Next week, the real party season starts so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I manage to finish the entire Blogmas as I intially intended. Today, I want to show you how to make really simple DIY natural christmas ornaments.
For the ones I want to show you, you’ll need some glitter (or glitter glue), oranges, walnuts, scissors, glue gun (or superglue) and string. You’ll also need the ingredients to make the salty dough: 300g of salt, 300g of white flour, a tablespoon of oil and 2dl of water.
Dry oranges are literally the simplest christmas decoration, but I personally love the way they look. Cut the oranges into thin slices and dry them overnight on a body of heat. Pierce them with a knife to cut holes for a simple string. You can also decorate them with glitter or leave them bare – they’ll look cute either way.
The same can be done with walnuts, but you’ll need a glue gun or a superglue to hold the strings in place. Remember to ask an adult to help you with this if you’re not used to handling hot glue.
These ornaments are done from the salty dough. You simply mix all the ingredients together, roll the dough and use some stencils to cut out the desired shapes. Then, bake them at 180* for 20 minutes or so and let them dry. You can them color them with glitter, nail polish or whatever else you have lying around the house.
