These are very simple and fun to make with the kids!
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp glitter (any color)
- 3 tsp water (more if needed)
- 1 drop food color (match the glitter or get creative!)
Mix the sugar and glitter in a small bowl
Add 3 tsp of water or more if needed to moisten the mixture. It should look wet and crumbly like this:
Now you can add a drop of food coloring if you desire and mix it in.
I only got 2 ornaments out of this size batch of ingredients. But, if you have smaller cookie cutters you might get more.
Scoop some of the mixture down into a cookie cutter. Press it all down so it’s nice and compact.
Gently slide the cookie cutter off of the pressed mixture and leave the ornament to harden and dry overnight.
Use ribbon to place bows and hangers around it using hot glue gun carefully.
The end result should look like this:
I’m sure this could be adapted in many ways. Different bows, holders, even stamping it. So, get creative and have fun!
Let me know if you try this out and how it works!
