Different Ways to Use Salt Dough

I was having fun with salt dough lately. In my past posts I used it to make gift tags during Christmas time. I thought it would be fun to make other types of gift tags with them. Since it is a dough/clay feel I wanted to see if I could wrap it around a glass votive to create a personalized candle. I also wrapped it around a mason jar and imprinted a quote on it.

Fun salt dough ideas.

To make the votive I cut the dough straight with a pastry scraper.  

 I used my favorite letter stamps.  You can buy something similar them on amazon.

For the salt dough around the mason jar I left rough edges.  Let the dough dry on top of whatever surface you want it to take the shape of.

Here is the recipe for salt dough:
1 cup salt
2 cups flour
1 cup warm water
 Mix all ingredients together in a big bowl and kneed until the consistency of play doh.


  1. What kind of paint did you use to stamp the letters? I love how crisp and vibrant the colors are.

    1. I just used markers for each stamp. They weren't even stamp markers, just plain old Crayola markers.

  2. Does it stick to the glass or does it need to be tied/ glued

    1. For the mason jar tag, it needed to be glued/tied. For the other ones because it dried all the way around the glass it did not need to be secured.
