Salt Dough Seashell Ornament

Do you know you can make ornaments in July? Yep, not just at Christmastime. You don't even need a tree to hang them either.

The kids and I had fun with salt dough. Just Google salt dough for a recipe. It's basically just flour, salt and water. It makes a dough like play dough but it dries hard so you can make sculptures and ornaments out of it. I shared these at Christmas last year. 
 For this little salt dough ornament I pressed a small seashell in the center of a flattened piece of dough. I poked a hole in the top. Once it dries, either in the oven or in the sun, I then attached a piece of string for hanging.
