Letters made out of salt dough

Top picture: salt dough right after cooking ( cook according to the size of the letters).

It is necessary to make salt dough and to let each Child make the letters of his/her first name. Don't forget to make holes for a string. Make rather  big holes as they shrink with cooking.

Paint them with acrylic paint.
You can also stick the letters on a background painted with acrylic paint.
You can use modelling clay (hardening in air) instead of salt dough (if you mind making a lot of salt dough  which you need  for all the letters) : clay is easier to handle and  allows to make smaller letters .But clay letters are  more fragile and should be glued on a background rather than hanged on.
