Salt dough is simple, quick and you will have all the ingredients already in the cupboard. They make the perfect gifts for grandparents or to give your own Christmas tree some extra sparkle.

    These look really fun to make and super easy too. When I first read the title I thought that they were something to eat, and I instantly thought of salted caramel. I hope that they look fab on the Christmas tree. Thanks for linking up at #fortheloveofBLOG this week. Claire x
