  1. How freakin cute!! Bella would attempt to eat the dough!! 😀

  2. Ahhhhh such a cute idea! I am totally doing this. 🙂 Thanks!! Found you via Mix it Up Monday!

  3. I love the idea of adding some paw prints to my Christmas tree! Great idea!

  4. I have done pawprints with ink, but not on salt dough. Great idea! Pinning to my Spoiled Rotten board!

  5. So cute! Love the model’s pose there.

  6. Very cute ornament idea 🙂 I’m feeling inspired to make some – thanks for sharing your dough recipe 🙂

  7. These are so cute and such a special way to include your furry friends in your holiday decorating! Thanks for sharing with us a the Merry Monday Link Party. Hope to see you again on Sunday night!

  8. Ellen Jones says:

    Wonderful project. Can’t wait to do this. Can you use acrylic instead of enamel?

  9. How thick do you roll out the dough? Maybe 1/4 inch?

  10. It’s fun making these ornaments but be sure to keep them well out of the way of your pets. They are deadly if ingested by them. All the salt tastes good but will stop organ function, esp kidneys if not caught right away.

  11. Mary Adkins says:

    Thank you for the wonderful keepsake idea, Ann. Paw Print ornaments are a great idea for Christmas & if you have a close friend or family member with a 4-legged baby this would be a wonderful gift for them. Will also be a treasured memory for me once my little Pug passes away. She is now 10 yrs. old. Posting came from Home-talk via my e-mail.

  12. Do you use plain flour or selfrising?
