Simple Salt Dough Hearts

Supplies: salt, flour, water, measuring cup, bowl, spoon, rolling pin, cookie cutters, cookie sheet, oven, paint brush, paint (also chalk if you decide to use chalkboard paint).

Mix a batch of salt dough according to the recipe (I used this one).

Roll it out and use cookie cutters in your desired shape.

After they have baked (warning: it takes like three hours) let the hearts cool and then paint. I used primarily chalkboard paint, but I did a few pale pink and metallic gold

    I I absolutely love your salt dough Hearts I've been making them out of other art projects when I was a little girl in elementary school is Christmas tree ornaments but thanks for the usage of the cookie cutters never thought about that. However I would like to know about that outrageously gorgeous orb on your deck or patio whatever it's on, that orb absolutely gorgeous I would like to know about that I would love to try to replicate that
