Easy DIY Salt Dough Christmas Tree Decorations for Christmas 2017

Easy DIY Salt Dough Christmas Tree Decorations for Christmas 2017

Homemade Christmas decorations on Pinterest can look like a good idea, but when it comes down to it, they're often more complicated than the photos make them seem. I've dabbled in all sorts of Christmas crafts this year, for all skill levels, but one craft favourite I always come back to is Salt Dough decorations.

Very nostalgic, salt dough crafts are basically Play-Doh for adults (and children of course too!) and it's fun to just let your imagination run wild and see what your hands end up creating.

I created a mix of things this year, including basic little stars using a cookie cutter, which I painted in vibrant colours, then varnished with clear nail polish - plus a little glitter for good measure of course! To hang them up, I decided to use copper wire, but you could use anything from invisible cotton to ribbon - or maybe even create your own garland!

But I also had fun making santas, stockings and holly berries, along with some plain gift tag shapes to add a homemade touch to my wrapping this year!

Super easy and fun, you can get family and friends involved too, and sit around crafting whilst watching your favourite festive film - throw in a glass of mulled wine too if you're up for a laugh! If they don't turn out too shabby you can display them in your home, on your tree, or give them to your friends - you can see I've adorned my stag head's antlers with my holly decoration!
