Which is your favorite reindeer? It’s Rudolph here hands down! That’s why we love this red nosed salt dough reindeer ornament!
This is such a fun and easy to make Christmas craft for kids and it makes a wonderful gift.
Have the little footsie ready? These is a perfect keepsake to be made with a baby’s foot and older kids can make it by themselves.
Salt Dough Reindeer Ornament
- Salt dough (you can see the recipe we used here)
- Non Toxic Craft Paints
- 2 Sprigs of Pine
- School Glue
- Wax Paper
Roll the salt dough into a ball. Flatten until about 3/4 inch thick.
Press your baby’s foot down to imprint.
Trim along the edges leaving a border and remove excess dough.
Place on wax paper and microwave for 15 seconds, repeat.
Continue on 20 seconds at a time until dough is dry and hardens.
Let cool completely before painting.
Painting your reindeer:
Use a light brown color to paint the full footprint, let dry.
Use a dark brown to paint in the stamped part of the footprint (toes, heel, etc) refer to picture.
Paint eyes and a nose , allow to dry.
Glue the pine sprigs to the back of the reindeer to create antlers (you can either use real ones or fake ones – I suggest fake ones if you plan to have this ornament for a longer time).
