crystal snowflakes

oh sure, nablopomo is over, and i’ll start with the good posts now…

doesn’t this look fun and easy??  you should totally make some! 

 

it doesn’t take much in the way of supplies.  but i did learn that our walmart doesn’t carry borax.  i also learned that the 4 lb box of borax is the smallest one available at the grocery store.  that seems like a lot of borax.

so.  make some flakes:

pipecleaners are a furry, fuzzy mess.  don’t wear a black shirt.

add hot water, borax, food coloring and wait til tomorrow.

 

i wish i had more containers so i could do more than 1 or 2 at a time, but we’ll have to be patient.  how cute will these be as christmas trees, or hearts for valentines day… i might try to figure a way to glitterfy them, how cute!!
