This easy Halloween craft is perfect for anyone who wants to add a little boo to the holiday without having to spend any cash! You already have the ingredients to make the Play Dough Ghost Ornaments in your pantry!
With the kids being at home this year, it feels like old times, we have time to craft in the afternoons again, and I LOVE it! With Halloween coming up, we decided to add a little boo to our decor with this easy homemade play doh ghost ornament craft. This is such an easy craft to make! It is perfect for all ages, from kids to adults. You can make about a dozen of these (or more depending on your cookie cutter size) from a batch of dough.
1 cup water
1 cup salt
2 cup flour
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
Slowly add water, a few spoons at a time, until dough is smooth.
You will know you haven't added to much water if your dough is easy to handle and isn't sticking to your hands messily.
Knead by hand for 5 minutes and let rest for 10 minutes.
Roll out the dough until it is about 1/2 an inch thck.
I used a cookie cutter to cut the shape of ghosts.
Next, poke a hole thru the top of the ghost so you can hang it up.
I used a BBQ skewer.
After cutting my shapes, I used a black crayola marker to make the face of the ghost, on the raw dough.
Place the dough on a cookie sheet and place it in a cold oven, turning up the temp to 200 degrees. Allow your ornaments to bake for about 90 minutes. Check them frequently to make sure they are not browning (if they are pull them out.)
Allow the ornaments to cool then feed a section of bakers twine or a string into the hole and hang.
Add a variety of faces to your ornaments for a boo-tiful variety of economical and adorable DIY Halloween decorations.
