Air Fryer Salt Dough Ornaments


Air Fryer Salt Dough Ornaments are amazing! Today, I sat down with my kids and made a batch for Valentine’s Day! But these are the perfect craft anytime, and the Air Fryer does a great job at making these. So, even if you have never made any before, this is a great and easy craft.



  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Table Salt
  • Warm Water


  • Cookie Cutter
  • Skewer or Straw
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Glossy Modge Podge
  • Thin Ribbon


  1. In a large bow with your hands or a stand mixer’s body, add the flour and salt. With the dough hook, stir to combine. Slowly pour in the water while stirring; once a dough starts to form, turn the mixer on medium and knead for a few minutes until smooth dough ball forms.
  2. Preheat the air fryer to 300 degrees F, divide the dough into 4 sections. Working with one section at a time, place it on a piece of parchment paper. Roll out the dough so it’s 1/4th of an inch thick.
  3. Use a cookie cutter to cut out your ornaments. Peel off the excess dough from around the ornaments and set it aside. You can use the leftover dough to make more ornaments. Using a skewer or straw, make a small hole in the ornament where you will want to hang it from. Place the parchment paper into the heated air fryer, or you can place the ornaments directly into the basket, not touching—Air Fry for 30 minutes or until completely dried out.
  4. Repeat with the remaining dough and ornaments. Place on a wire rack to cool completely. Paint your ornaments with acrylic paint. Let dry completely. Add a thin coat of glossy modge podge, let dry completely, then seal the other side. Add a ribbon as a hanger.
