We LOVE our diffusers in this house, and we especially love to fill them with the scents of the holidays. My kiddos love to make diffuser necklaces and ornaments….so these salt dough diffuser decorations were a BIG hit! Plus, we turned some of them into necklaces and gave them as teacher gifts!
Salt Dough Diffuser Decorations
- 1 cup salt
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup water
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Combine all ingredients until you get a nice soft dough
- If it is too sticky, add more flour
- Roll dough out on some parchment paper, silpat, or a flour dusted countertop
- Use cookie cutters to cut into the desired shapes. We liked using leaves, like these, for fall decorations
- Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes
- Allow to cool
- String up, apply your favorite essential oils and ENJOY! We even made some into diffuser necklaces (like these) to wear for fun! Enjoy your Festive Salt Dough Diffuser Decorations!

I really like this idea! It will make nice “stocking stuffers” for my family. I’m wondering how much EO to put on each one. I’ll use Nutmeg as it will go with the cinnamon and but it probably will evaporate quite quickly and just leave the cinnamon scent. Thanks!
I put 2-3 drops on and the scent lasts for a while! These will make great stocking stuffers 🙂
When & what do you use to make holes for stringing?
Sounds like a good way to use up old flour!
What is the purpose of the cinnamon?
It lends a longer lasting Christmas smell, if you do not reapply the essential oils
Concerned about humidity? Is this dough going to disintergrate if it gets damp?
Over time it does break down, they last a few years. You could epoxy them to last longer I would think
Just modgepodge or spray with clear acrylic, but then it doesn’t absorb the to as well
covering it with a coating will preserve the ornament longer, but it till not work as well as a diffuser that way.
