~Colleen's Salt Dough Bowl Fillers~

I recently made Colleen's salt dough bowl fillers. It was a lot of fun creating them. I think it is something that I could easily get addicted to. I made stars, hearts, and evergreen trees. Mine are not as cute as Colleen's, but for a first try I think they turned out okay. I have started making some Christmas ones, but they are not ready to be unveiled. I think if I keep practicing they will get better and better. To visit Colleen's blog and get the recipe, click ~Here~. You can also check out her recipe in the Fall, 2010 issue of A Primitive Place Magazine.


























So...what do you think?

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope that you will come back as often as you can. Always remember, "Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom."

All My Best,
~Dan~

I think yours came out great. Salt Dough ornaments were a really big thing 25 years ago. Wow, that sure dates me.

Hi Dan My Friend...
Oh I am so impressed. I do believe that you have done a most exquisite job. I love them, and can't wait to see them in bowls or containers with the holidays coming up.

Are you going to try pumpkins too? Pumpkins could be used for 2 holidays.

Ofcourse the stars I adore because I love red,white and blue anything.

I am clapping for you my friend, can you hear me?
Please take a bow for a job well done.

I will have to check out Colleen's recipe.

Hope you and the family are well. I think of you often and smile with all your little critters.

Have a wonderful week my friend. Country hugs, Sherry

Dan you did a fabulous job on them. The first time I made them I had some of them blow up and crack open. I guess I had them to thick. But the more I made the better they looked. Your first batch puts mine to shame!!! So I think you did really well!!!

Blessings,
Dana

I love to make salt dough ornaments. When my sisters were small they would come over to my house for the weekend and we would spend it making salt dough ornaments. I still have them today........27 years later....and they go on my tree every year at Christmas time. I love your stars, hearts and trees!

Goodness how can you make these any better. I love how they turned out. Especially the hearts.
Honey you are just the best for sharing her site so we can try these too.
You are on my site today. Hope you don't mind.
Love

Yes, Dan ... I do believe you've been bitten by the salt dough bug! Your first attempts are fabulous! And you're right in saying that they will turn out even better with practice ... and a little experimenting too. Just keep getting your craft on, my friend.

I look forward to seeing your next batches ... and all of the displays they inspire. Well done!

Too bad you're too far away to come over to my kitchen for a little Christmas crafting...
