Shell Plaque

I found the original idea for this project in the August 2012 issue of Family Fun Magazine.   We used sea shells and rocks instead of pebbles

Directions: Mix up the salt dough - 3 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt, 1 1/4 cups of water (plus up to an additional 1/4 cup as needed). Use an electric mixer on medium speed to beat the ingredients together until a ball forms. If the mixture is still crumbly, add more water. Knead the dough until it's smooth. Divide the dough into three balls. Place each ball on a piece of foil and flatten it into a disk. Press shells (the magazine used pebbles) into the dough to create a design. Heat the oven to 275 degrees. Transfer the  and dough onto a baking sheet. Bake the plaques for 2 hours, then let them cool completely.
