Glittermen….Pumpkin pie scented salt dough ornaments…..

We needed an indoor day activity to do since our mounds of beautiful snow also included negative 10 degree weather and bored kids.
I found a salt dough recipe and added 2 TBSP. of pumpkin pie spice to give it that holiday smell, feel and color. You can also add ginger and cinnamon for a gingerbread scent!
  I also used whole wheat flour so it started off a tad browner.
 We decided to do fake cookies. I did put hole sin the top with a sharpened pencil incase we decided to hang them up.
 Since many of our “cookies” came out like this, I decided to help out and do a few more traditional gingerbread man shaped ones myself.

 After air drying; we brushed them with white school glue and used craft glitter and those colored glitter glue pens for “icing”.

 and the glittering began…
I didn’t know what I was in for.
 glitter pens, glitter table, glitter girls, glitter mom and of course a glitter floor.

They actually still have  a faint gingerbread scent which is nice.

I don’t know if they will keep until next year, but  we might make  a few to use as gift tags on packages with a clay stamping kit… if I’m up for more glitter.

  1. What a fun way to spend some time with little ones! I love the way you strung them together as a garland. They are so simple and rustic, but so cute!

  2. I love the idea! I too just got my Romantic Country issue! Love your images of the Na da farm event! Your photography is stunning and I enjoy your angles! I was honored to be in the same issue as you. Have a wonderful day!Lulu

  3. You know the part in Sleepless in Seattle when she says ” I just need more twinkle lights”- well, I think the updated version would be a blogger/artists saying- “I just need more glitter.” I am all about glitter lately. And, I love the glittermen over the sink.
    Fabulous- more fabulous than ANYTHING you could have purchased. GO GLITTER! And Merry Christmas!

  4. Those are so cute. I’ve done the apple sauce, cinnamon and elmer’s glue ones before but never this recipe. I know the ones I did before last and last and last. I still have them from like 20 years ago.
