    • Christmas Snow

       in Science Diet pet food coupon and Book-treesnow1.jpgAdd the beautiful effect of snow to the branches of your holiday tree using a few basic ingredients . . .

      1/3 cup liquid starch
      1 cup soap flakes (shaved ivory soap bar) or detergent granules
      1 to 2 tablespoons water
      Blue food coloring

      Mix liquid starch into soap flakes. Using a hand mixer, gradually add in the water, beating until the mix has the consistency of marshmallow fluff or thick meringue. To achieve a icy effect, carefully beat in a couple drops of blue food coloring.

      To Use:
      Dab the "snow" onto the tops & ends of your Christmas tree branches using a paint brush or foam brush. For added effect, sprinkle tiny amounts of glitter onto the "snow" before it dries.

      CAUTION: Do not let pets lick this, tell young children not to handle it, as they may end up with soap in their eyes.

        Thank you for a great recipe! We made our own liquid starch using cornstarch. It came out great, thank you!

        liquid starch is found in the laundry isle of your grocery store.
