This fun DIY project would be a great piece to hang in your house or even give as a gift. All you need is paint, masking tape, a paint brush, and something to paint on. Canvas, scraps of wood, whatever you want to get the effect you desire. Mountain Hardware supplies all of the tools you need for this project (minus the canvas).
Salt dough recipe: 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup warm water, 1 cup flour. Rolled out the dough and cut the shapes. Then poked large holes for the string, baked them at 250 for around two hours (until hard all the way through), painted with acrylic paints if desired
