Simple Salt Dough Hearts

 Hey there crafty friends! I have a super simple project that is perfect for Valentine's Day!
  


 
 
The other morning it was freezing and I had less than zero interest in actually leaving my home. It was the perfect time to create this project. Note: this is a fab one to do with the kids, too!
 
 
 
 
Supplies: salt, flour, water, measuring cup, bowl, spoon, rolling pin, cookie cutters, cookie sheet, oven, paint brush, paint (also chalk if you decide to use chalkboard paint).
 
Mix a batch of salt dough according to the recipe (I used this one).
 
Roll it out and use cookie cutters in your desired shape.
 
 
 
After they have baked (warning: it takes like three hours) let the hearts cool and then paint. I used primarily chalkboard paint, but I did a few pale pink and
metallic gold.
 
 
 
 
These would be super adorable in a little bowl or as part of a Valentine Day display.
 
 
 
 
 It would also be super cute to make some larger hearts that you could write messages on with chalk. Sweet!
