posted in Family & Kids > Pets
  • Ingredients
    ½ cup hot water
    ½ cup salt
    1 cup flour
    Acrylic Paint
    Matte Finish Mod Podge
    Gold Paint Pen or Sharpie

    1. Mix together the hot water, salt and flour. Kneed it together with your hands until it forms a dough ball. If it's too sticky, add some extra flour.
    2. Roll out the dough until it is ¼ inch to ½ inch thick.
    3. Use small plastic cups to cut out circle shapes.
    4. Gently press your dog's paw into the center of the circle to make an imprint.
    5. Use a drinking straw to cut a hole for the ribbon.
    6. Transfer the circles to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 225F for 2 to 3 hours until they are solid and completely dried out.

    1. Once they have cooled, paint the ornaments in colours to match your pup's personality.
    2. Write your dog's name and the year on the front or back of the ornament using a gold paint pen or Sharpie marker.
    3. Add a coat of Matte Finish Mod Podge and sprinkle it generously with glitter.
    4. If you only want the imprint filled with glitter, allow the first coat of Mod Podge to dry completely. Then add a generous second coat to the inside of the paw print and sprinkle it generously with glitter.
    5. String a ribbon through the hole to hang your ornament.
    6. If you want you can attach an extra ribbon or bow tie to the ornament using hot glue.
