Trenton and I tried our hand at salt art this afternoon while Charlotte was napping.
I dyed our salt this morning using 3-4 drops of food coloring per 1/4 cup of salt. I was wanting to make a jack-o-lantern, but dying salt black was next to impossible so I decided on just a plain pumpkin instead.
I used the back of a frozen waffle box to freehand a pumpkin.
I helped Trenton put glue in each section of the pumpkin and then we spread it out with a paint brush.
Trenton spooned the dyed salt onto the glue and then shook the excess salt onto a cookie sheet.
I’ve been sweeping up salt all afternoon, but it is totally worth it. Trenton’s pumpkin turned out so cute!
