Salt Dough Photo Frame #24XmasCrafts
Salt Dough Photo Frame
These salt dough photo frames make lovely personalised gifts for grandparents. I’m keeping ours though because I love it too much to give away!
For the dough, you will need:
- 1 cup Plain flour
- Half a cup salt
- Half a cup water
- A rolling pin
- A knife
Mix all the ingredients until a dough forms. Knead the dough for around 5 minutes to help with the elasticity.
Roll out the dough then cut to size. It helps to use a photo to see how big your frame needs to be.
Cut out the middle of the photo frame a little bigger than the photo you’re going to be framing.
Squash each side in a bit to make the frame a nicer shape. Make 2 holes for the ribbon to go through when the frame has dried and been decorated. (Remember to put the holes in the right place. Ours are in the wrong place as I forgot I wanted to use a photo that is landscape, not portrait!)
We left our frame to air dry; depending on the size and thickness, this can take 2-7 days. If you want to speed up the drying process, you can dry them in the oven.
For the decorations you will need:
- Gold spray
- Glitter glue
- Ribbon (not pictured)
Spray the frame gold and leave to dry.
Using the gems, glue and glitter glue, decorate the frame. When the glue has dried, thread the ribbon through the holes and tie at the back.
Glue the photo to the back of the frame.
Day 20 tomorrow and I’m getting almost as excited as the girls! We’ll be making cinnamon dough tree ornaments.
