I decorate my tree in all white and silver decorations. It's just something I do. Probably because I grew up with a tree decorated only in white ornaments. It really is beautiful. I love making ornaments for the tree every year with my kids, but because of my limited colour selection it's proving to be a little difficult. Last year we made the ever so popular snowman handprint ornaments on silver balls which I'll share in a few days. This year I tried really hard to think of something to make with the kids that would stay in my colour theme. As I was walking through JoAnne's I found some white model magic and knew exactly what I was going to do. This is really so easy and they turned out beautiful. If your kids love playing with playdoh, they're going to love model magic. I had never used it before and I'm kind of regretting it. This stuff is so awesome. I love it so much more than playdoh and it dries beautifully. It's hard, but not fragile so I know it won't break. These ornaments should last for years. These would make great gifts for family members too! Here's how we made them:
What you'll need:
white crayola model magic
snowflake cookie cutter - I used a wilton comfort grip
straw (I forgot to photograph this!)
1. roll out your model magic so it's about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick.
2. using your cookie cutter, cut out a snowflake
3. using the straw, poke a hole at the top
4. repeat process for however many you want to make
5. allow to dry for about 24-48 hours, turning over halfway through.
6. hang with a ribbon.
