Dogwood Reindeers and Saltdough Stars
Here's a couple of things I made years ago but I'm thinking of trying again this year. Do you remember when salt dough was all the rage? I was into it in a big way and still have a few things I made then - this star being one of them. It adds just the right finishing touch to my wine bottle tag. The star was cut with a biscuit cutter and I glued a short length of ordinary string and a green lentil to the centre before baking in the oven ( remember to pierce a hanging hole with a skewer). I then painted it first with red and then gold acrylic paint.
Sadly I don't have access to the dogwood now but I have lots of willow in the garden that really needs cutting back so I'll be using that.
Just noticed Claire at Waltzing Mouse has a Christmas Tag Challenge on at the moment so I'll enter my bottle tag and cross my fingers that it "tickles"!
Supplies for tag: Papertrey Ink Bottle Tag Die, Waltzing Mouse Nordic Winter stamp set
