Тhese funny and a little weird heads are very impressive when they are fully finished. You can use them as pencil holders or even vases for your flowers.

Wrap a glass jar or bottle in salt dough: The salt dough recipe is really easy. You can work with it right away – and it’s safe for kids!

1 cup flour,

1/2 cup salt,

1 tbsp oil

1/2 cup water

Add a nose, two eyes, two ears and some hair.

A double dose of dough (2 cups flour, 1 cup salt and 1 cup water) can cover 3 different-sized jars.

To stop the pieces from falling after the dough is baked, ‘stitch’ them in advance with a straw or a wooden skewer. This makes the dough parts stay together well.

Bake in the oven.

This time I turned the oven to 60 degrees Celsius. After the jars had been baked/dried for about an hour, I left them inside the oven to cool. 

Color with tempera paints.
