Salt dough is a fun, frugal material to use for all kinds of keepsakes! Make this sweet snow globe photo frame keepsake this Winter with your kiddo!
Have you seen the popular Hearts & Hands Heart Keepsake and Handprint Mitten Keepsake yet? (You can see all our keepsakes HERE.)
This snow globe one was inspired by those two, but we used fingerprints instead.
We used the salt dough recipe: 1 cup flour, 1 cup salt and 1/2 cup water.
I pressed the circles using two different size glass and bowl. Then cut it like shown in the image below:
The kids pressed their fingerprints all around the “globe” and pressed the date with our cookie alphabet set.
It was baked in the 70’C oven for 3 hours and left turned upside down overnight to air dry more.
The next day it was painted(the other one had an accident and needed to be glued back together, and then I just spray painted it).
I cut a copy of a photo(you can use a colour photo instead if you prefer) and added that to round cardboard stuck to the back with normal craft glue. Then added some white “snow” with the toothbrush technique.
You can still see the crack on the spray-painted globe, but still so cute!
(My hubby thinks it looks more like a space helmet, but you have to have a creative imagination to see the globe, right?)
I loved these snow globe keepsakes so much that they are going to my office at school!
