If you've been reading, you know that I'm both strapped for cash and lacking Christmas decorations. So it's back to handcrafting for me!
This week I decided that I wanted some little snowman figurines to sit on top of my oven. I pulled out a basic salt dough recipe and glammed it up!
1 cup flour
1 cup salt
1/2 cup water
BAM dash of silver glitter
I start rolling the dough into balls and building my snowmen. For arms I used the stems off of leaves. They are remotely uniform and can easily be replaced next year if need be. After building my snowmen, I pushed the ends of the stems into them to make the holes where they will go after baking. DO NOT LEAVE THE STICKS IN THE SNOWMEN WHILE BAKING.
|I even made a fat snow cat!|
They began drooping a little while baking, making them look almost melted. I just say that it's the parents running after the kid!
