Sheep Salt Dough Ornaments


Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from the farm and I made sheep salt dough ornaments! Our first Christmas here hasn’t exactly looked or felt like I thought it would. You see our beautiful Christmas tree completely shed all of its needles about 2 weeks after having it. And yes we watered it! Apparently this is just something that happens once in awhile.

So we have no tree this Christmas morning. I also took down all the rest of our greenery after we removed the tree because WHAT A MESS! Lol! And I didn’t want to have to clean it up twice. Also our sweet old man kitty is sick and this could very well be our last Christmas with him.

But last night I was thinking how this Christmas has reminded me about what is important and why we celebrate this season and for that I am grateful.

Anyway, I made some cutie little sheep salt dough ornaments for our tree and even though I was only able to hang a handful (otherwise our tree would have been completely bare for these pics ha) I think they turned out sweet!

Salt Dough Recipe

  • 1 cup table salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup water
  • sheep cookie cutter
  • straw
  • string

Mix dry ingredients then add water. Roll out your dough and cut. Then I used a straw to make a hole for the string. I let mine air dry overnight on a cookie cooling rack. That’s it!

These ornaments are a perfect little farmhouse touch and they’re actually a hint at something really exciting that will be coming to Midcounty Farm this spring! 😉

I hope you’re spending today with those you love and making wonderful Christmas memories! Have the merriest Christmas friend!
