I wanted to make an Advent Calendar this year, but once I was finished with my idea, it looked more like a countdown than a treat filled calendar.
Fender, mC and I were making ornaments using this great homemade clay recipe and the idea came to me that I wanted to make 24 snowflakes and hang them up somewhere in the house.
Once the clay was cooked and cooled, I simply rolled out the dough and used cookie cutters for the shapes. But before they dried I stamped in numbers and skewered a hole in the top for hanging. Then I let them dry for 24 hours or so. DO NOT bake these. The recipe said you could, and they reacted more like cookies - browning, bubbling and warping! You can easily get 40 medium sized ornaments out of this dough and it can be painted and sealed! It costs less than $2 to make a batch!
