Hey Crafty Mamas!
Don’t you love to see a baby’s little footprint in a craft? Since my daughter has been born, I have been looking for crafts to do to with her. After learning about salt dough, I thought of a fall craft for us to enjoy! This keepsake pumpkin will be put out for years to come! We chose to make 2 pumpkins, since the recipe made a little more dough than we needed. It was easy and made minimal mess! This craft is sturdy! I have it up on a shelf in my home and my husband has knocked it over (more times than I can count) and it doesn’t break! The dough gets lightly toasted and doesn’t shatter like some crafts would.
1 Cup Salt
1 Cup Warm Water
2 Cups Flour
Step 1: Measure 1 cup of salt and pour into large mixing bowl. Then, add 1 cup of warm water and stir until salt is dissolved. Stir flour in slowly until dough is formed.
Step 2: Then, mold dough into shape of a pumpkin. (I recommend molding the dough straight on the pan you plan to use.) Add footprints and any words or designs before baking.
Step 3: Lastly, bake in the oven at 250 degrees for 1-2 hours until hardened.
Step 4: Let cool, and paint!
Pretty simple, right? I thought so too! You can get your FREE printable recipe card with full instructions here!
