Add 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.
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.
