Instructions
For the Salt Dough:
  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. Trace the Halloween Salt Dough Keepsake Template using a knife to make the shapes.
  4. Cut a circle in the middle of each shape using a small, round container.
  5. Use a drinking straw to cut a hole for the ribbon or twine.
  6. Transfer the circles to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 225F for 3 to 4 hours until they are solid and completely dried out.
To Decorate It:
  1. Once they have cooled, paint the keepsakes in your favourite Halloween colours.
  2. Paint a layer of Matte Finish Mod Podge to the top of the keepsake and sprinkle it generously with glitter.
  3. Once it's dry, tap off the excess glitter.
  4. String a piece of twine or ribbon through the hole to hang your keepsake.
  5. Cut out the photos you plan to use and attach them to the back of your keepsake using Mod Podge (just around the edges).
Notes
Those extra school photos that you don't know what to do with will work great for this craft!
