|Snowmen at Night, by Caralyn Buehner|
And I am so excited because I just saw a new edition,
Snowmen All Year. I'll tell you all about it when the book order arrives!
And a new snowy book we discovered this year...
So, after you've cuddled up with one of these or a snow favorite of your own, it's time for crystal creations!! I saw these fantastic snowflakes at a craft fair. They were all sparkly and pretty and I was just dying to know how to make my own. Turns out it is pretty darn easy.
4- Once the pencils are attached and the jars are filled with solution, drop them in and let them sit overnight. You don't want the pipe cleaner to touch the bottom or sides of the jar (FYI). You can add food coloring to the solution if you want them to come out colored, although ours weren't very vibrant in the end.
Finally, the finished products. I had a heck of a time photographing these so you could really see them sparkling. They really are pretty fantastic, even if the pictures don't quite give you that Hope Diamond lustre.
