How darling are these little salt dough ornaments? I love that you shaped them into donuts and put sprinkles on them. They are so festive and fun. It looks like you could pick them off the tree and gobble them up they are so realistic. I love it. Just mini-donuts.

I love these Salt Dough Donut DIY ornaments! They are so sweet and cute! I love making things with my hands, and this brings back memories of salt dough creations my family and I made when I was a child. And it would be a great craft to make with my kids. I am always looking for projects we can do to get them away from the TV or tablet!

Um, these are the cutest.

It has been years since I have made anything with salt dough and this idea is so cute and whimsical! I really like how realistic the donuts look, too. Thanks for sharing this project!

These are adorable! I can't wait to make these. My sister's a baker, so they're a great gift idea for her.
