Coastal DIY: Starfish Garland

Starfish Garland DIY

What You Need:

Salt Dough: Mix 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour, 1 Cup Salt, and 3/4 to 1 Cup of Water
Jute or Heavy Twine
Toothpicks

Starfish Garland DIY

How You Make It:

Take a chunk of the dough and roll it into a ball. Onto a lightly floured surface (to prevent sticking), use hands to flatten ball.
Once you have your circle of dough, use a toothpick to press marks into the dough where the arms of the starfish will be (or are they legs?????)

Remove dough between markings and use hands to round and shape the starfish form.
Use toothpick to make long indentation in center of each leg and to poke small holes up and down arms of starfish.
Poke hole in top of starfish (we used the non-pointy end of a ball point pen).

Once dried and cooled, apply coat of acrylic sealant.
Tie small loop through hole at top of starfish with jute so the stafish will hang flat when suspended.
String starfish on strand of jute to make garland.
