While browsing around the net, I came across this post on salt dough star fish at Make the Best of It. I had also priced star fish for my beach mantel decor and decided that they cost way too much, so I was thrilled to find these instructions.
I tried it out and I'm happy with the results. I painted my starfish with a mixture of orange acrylic paint and white paint. I mixed the two together to get the color I wanted.
I made a total of four. I glued the largest one onto burlap in a frame to make an additional piece of art.
Have a great day and summer!
