I made Salt Dough Gift Tags/Ornaments today and it was super easy! I made mine smaller circles and will be using them to tie around Christmas gifts and add a drop of Holiday Joy essential oil blend. These are going to be the best smelling gifts this year.

DIY Salt Dough Tags DIY Salt Dough Tags

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup salt
3/4 cup warm water
Drinking straw or toothpick
Cookie cutters
Your favorite doTERRA essential oils
Optional: stamps and paint
Note: Baking the ornament will turn the dough slightly brown and may “puff” up some of the ornaments. If  you prefer, you can also air dry the ornaments for 2-3 days to help the ornaments remain white and flat.
I chose to air dry my tags to keep them white and flat to use as gift tags
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Pour flour, salt, and warm water into large bowl.
  3. Using your hands, knead until all ingredients are well-incorporated and dough is smooth.
  4. If mixture is too dry, add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until dough comes together.
  5. Roll out dough on floured surface until 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Using cookie cuters, cut out desired shapes and place on cookie sheet  lined with parchment paper.
  7. Using a drinking straw or toothpick, make a hole in top of ornament for threading string.
  8. Place in oven until hard, approximately 1 hour.
  9. Once hard, remove from oven and cool.
  10. Decorate with paint, string, or glitter. Add essential oils by placing one drop on each ornament and allow it to soak in.
Tip: Add some decoration to your ornaments by stamping them! Just place stamp on ink and carefully place on ornament to transfer design before they dry.
