Halloween Salt Dough Garland

5 Materials
1 Day
So when I was making my Salt Dough Leaves, we also went ahead and made some cute Halloween characters. After I did that, I glittered them and strung some baker’s twine through them to make a simple halloween salt dough garland.
I’m having a halloween party this year and so I’ve literally been decorating for halloween for over a month.  Insane?  Maybe.
Above it I hung a Spooky Halloween Banner that says “Beware” made from book pages. Simple to make–here’s the tutorial!

I sent out the halloween party invitations via evite and my brother responded with “Maybe.  That seems a bit early for Halloween.”  My party is in two weeks…what do you think?  Too early?  In my mind Halloween has been going on for a month!
I love this cute little garland. It’s such a fun way to bring Halloween into your house without being too creepy. The salt dough is easy to make and create different decorations with. It’s also a great craft to do with your kids!  My 4-year-old and I had a blast cutting out the shapes with cookie cutters and then baking them.  Then we painted them and glittered them, just like with the Salt Dough Autumn Leaves.

Suggested materials:

  • Salt Dough Ingredients: Baking Soda, Cornstarch, Water
