Love is in the air...well sorta...

I started pulling out the RED and PINK stuff today!!
I wanted to share with you what I made a back in December.

 Little Heart Scatters..Made from SALT DOUGH!
I cut them out with a little heart cookie cutter..

 Spray painted them red-quick and easy here folks..

 Shot them with a coat of sealer..And BAM! Done!

Cute little bowl scatters...I made star scatters, gingerbread men scatters and Santa's boots and hat scatters (I will share at another time)
Here is the salt dough recipe that I used..
Take about 1 cup salt and dissolve it in about 1 1/4 cup water (or a little more if needed). Then stir in about 3 cups flour ( one cup at a time), until it's a nice soft dough.
You can shape it or cut it out with cookie cutters. Let it harden or bake it at 200 degree F until hard. Then paint with regular acrylics or spray paint :) Be sure your scatters are completely dry and cooled off before you paint them. Store in a container where no moisture or water can get to them.

I sold these this year for $2 a dozen and they were a big hit!
