Salt Dough Puppy Paw Print Christmas Ornament

If you want to cherish the memory of your pup, make one of these paw print ornaments! You can customize them with so many colors! Please note that these are toxic to dogs if eaten so hang them high up on the tree. Here’s my Sadie girl, an Australian shepherd terrier mix at about 2 years old 🙂


Salt Dough Ornament Ingredients:

  • 1 cup salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Parchment paper or aluminium foil
  • Straw/pen for punching a hole


Mix the salt, flour, and water in a bowl until it becomes firm. Knead the dough for 30 seconds and then cut individual circles with a cup.


Press your dogs paw into the salt dough and use a straw/pen cap to make a small hole at the top.


Bake at 200 degrees in the oven for 2-3 hours or until completely dry. Once it is cooled, grab some chalkboard paint and red tinsel glitter to decorate! I wrote the year and her name with a piece of chalk. Finish it off with a pretty ribbon to hang on the tree!
