Salt Dough Starfish Garland

Any beach, underwater theme parties out there? How about making your own salt dough garland.

What You Need:
  • Salt Dough: Mix 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour, 1 Cup Salt, and 3/4 to 1 Cup of Water
  • Jute or Heavy Twine
  • Toothpicks
How You Make It:
  • Take a chunk of the dough and roll it into a ball. Onto a lightly floured surface (to prevent sticking), use hands to flatten ball.
  • Once you have your circle of dough, use a toothpick to press marks into the dough where the arms of the starfish will be
  • Remove dough between markings and use hands to round and shape the starfish form.
  • Use toothpick to make long indentation in center of each leg and to poke small holes up and down arms of starfish.
  • Poke hole in top of starfish (we used the non-pointy end of a ball point pen).
  • Let dry, either by allowing to air dry, or by baking in a 200 degree oven for several hours until hardened.
  • Once dried and cooled, apply coat of acrylic sealant.
  • Tie small loop through hole at top of starfish with jute so the stafish will hang flat when suspended.
  • String starfish on strand of jute to make garland.
