DIY Ramadan Salt Dough Ornaments

The month of Ramadan is just around the corner and this year is a busy time for us as we are expecting baby #3 in July. As you may already know, decorating the home for Ramadan is something we do every year and this year is no exception. We are, however, trying to be more conscious of our waste so I’m really focusing on using what we have and making what we don’t. That’s why I’m super excited to share this DIY Ramadan craft project featuring With a Spin’s cookie cutters. This project makes use of everyday ingredients in your pantry, can be customized to your style, and the finished product can be used year after year. Now that’s what I call a win-win-win. While, I love neutral minimalist tones, the kids wanted vibrant colors so that’s what we went with. The decorating possibilities are truly endless. Let’s make some salt dough ornaments!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup salt
1 cup warm water

Lantern cookie cutter set
Islamic shape cookie cutter set
Rolling pin
Baking sheet


  1. Mix warm water into flour and salt mixture to form a dough. Knead for 10 minutes until smooth.
  2. Roll out dough about 1/4-1/2 inch thick and cut out desired shapes. Use a toothpick or skewer to punch a hole near the top of the shape for the string.
  3. Place shapes on a baking sheet and bake for 5 hours at 200 F.
  4. Let cool overnight and paint with acrylic or craft paint.
  5. Thread with string to make individual ornaments for hanging or string several together to make a festive garland.

That’s it! This is such a simple and fun craft to make with the kids and a wonderful way to get them involved in the Ramadan spirit.

    • Liz!! We are well, it has been really busy, expecting baby #3 in July and both of us are in school, it has been hectic, what is funny is that we have so much content in drafts and not able to finalize anything because we are sticklers for reviewing our own posts! Hope you are still rock n rollin with your awesome facts and dishes 🙂
