valentines-heartNothing like bunting to cheer any household or heart I say!

We made gorgeous heart bunting with salt dough and then painted each heart and decorated it.
We tied some ribbon and strung them together with twine.
One of my favourite crafts, follow our Salt Dough Recipe Below:

felltarn-valentines

1/2 cup of salt
1/2 cup of water
1 cup of flour

How to make the salt dough:

Add the 1/2 cup of salt and 1 cup of flour to a bowl, and stir in the water adding it slowly.  You may not need all of the water. You want the dough to be dry. If it gets sticky add more flour. Knead the dough and then roll out, then use a knife or a cookie cutter to make your hearts. Make holes in the heart to thread the twine through.

Dry the dough in the oven which takes about 3 hours at a low heat so they don’t burn, then once they are dry and cool you can paint and decorate
