Countdown to Christmas Party – Borax Snowflakes

Welcome to the Countdown to Christmas Party

A place to showoff all your Christmas prep goodies!

This week I’m sharing a fun Christmas ornament that your kids will LOVE to make with you.

{Borax Snowflakes}

These are the supplies you need:

1 cup of boiling water

3 tbsp. of borax

pipe-cleaner

food coloring (if desired)

jar (with a wide enough mouth for the snowflake)

string or twine

pencil

This makes 1 snowflake!

Cut your pipe-cleaner in 3 even pieces.  Twist them in the center to form a snowflake. Trim the ends of the snowflake, if needed, to fit in the jar.

Tie one end of the twine to the top of the snowflake and the other end of the twine to a pencil.

Pour 1 cup of boiling water into your jar.

Add 1 tbsp. of borax at a time, stirring between each adding.

Once the borax has been mixed well (it’s ok if a little is at the bottom), add the food coloring if you desire.

Now place your snowflake in the water / borax mixture.

Then wait… this is the hard part, till tomorrow…

In the morning you will have this beautiful creation!

It’s so shiny pretty!  Here’s the one I did with blue food coloring…

This is a great Christmas presents for the kiddos to make (just watch the boiling water) & cheap, especially is you have all the supplies on hand as I did.

So how are you getting ready for Christmas?

This is an easy link up party… so no button or link-back is necessary, it just has to be Christmas related!

    I made the borax snowflakes just the other day with my granddaughter. We tied a teeny narrow ribbon (pink or green) at the top of each—so cute!!!

    Those snowflake ornaments are beautiful! I could see a whole bunch of these decorating a wreath or little tree.
