Sometimes we wear our heart on our sleeve and sometimes we wear our planet around our necks. We have focused on celebrating Earth Day with various craft projects and activities, but I thought it might be nice to make a simple Earth Day necklace. Using a basic salt dough recipe, this necklace can be worn for years to come.

Earth Day Necklace
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup iodized salt
1/2 cup water
circular cookie cutter
round metal icing tip
blue and yellow acrylic paints
necklace fastener set
Begin by making a batch of basic salt dough. Sift together flour, salt medium sized bowl. Slowly pour in the water and stir the ingredients together until a dough forms. You may need less or more water. The dough will easily form a ball, it shouldn’t be sticky.
How you choose to paint your planets is up to you. I chose to paint the entire planet blue and allow it to dry before adding the green. I created my own variety of shades of greens by combining yellow and blue. Your planets can looks as realistic or unrealistic as you like.
