This family of snowmen are absolutely adorable! I'm adding these folks onto my decor for January at my house. They look like they'd be the perfect guests!!! I was wondering about some of the questions that Weberme asked so I did some research and someone on line said to apply a couple of coatings of clear acrylic coating to the salt dough items. Another person added that they had salt dough ornaments from the 1960s. The key thing seems to be that they are well sealed.

Never seen or heard of these before and never heard of salt dough. These little guys are so cute. Does the dough get hard? How long do they last? Will the heat melt them? I am so excited to see this tutorial and would love to make some. Such a simple recipe to make the salt dough and you can use things around the house to make the snowmans face and clothes. Lets make some and see some pictures. So glad I found this tutorial.
