Dad Rocks Paperweight: Father's Day Craft
Make dad a fun salt dough paperweight for Father's Day!
- ¼ cup salt
- ½ cup flour
- ¼ cup water
- cookie sheet
- ½ cup pea gravel
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
Mix flour, salt, and water together in a bowl. If the dough is too sticky add small
amounts of flour until it is doughy and pliable. Be careful not to add too much as the dough will dry out and your creation will crack.
Shape a piece of the dough into a ball in your hands. Place the ball on the cookie sheet and flatten to about ½″ thickness.
Carefully select pieces of pea gravel to spell out “DAD ROCKS”. Press them firmly but gently into the salt dough.
Bake your paperweight for 2-2.5 hours until completely dry.
Remove from oven and allow to cool before handling or removing from cookie sheet.
Optional: You can spray your creation with acrylic sealer or paint it with a clear coat sealer.
