• Christmas Snow

    Add the beautiful effect of snow to the branches of your holiday tree using a free basic pantry 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.

    To make it a little heavier nd positionable, I stuff mine with rice and follow all the same directions.
