• 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.

      Hi.
      Looks grate, but what is liquid cornstarch?
      And also, this is only for natural trees or it goes on fake too?

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