So…I was sitting around one day thinking about Valentine’s. I like crafting and almost anything diy. Then I was having fun on pinterest and came across something called diy silly putty. So I put my own twist on it!
Arrowroot powder (or cornstarch).
Dish soap (preferably colored, instead of white or clear.).
1 tbsp measuring spoon.
heart shaped cookie cutter ❤ .
This is the very basic method:
Put 2.5 tbsp of arrowroot powder into bowl.
Pour 1.5 tbsp of dish soap into bowl.
Knead with hands.
Shape with cookie cutter.
You may also add food coloring if you want more color.
One thing I noticed is I had to add more arrowroot to the mixture so it wouldn’t be sticky. If it’s too dry, add soap. Too wet? Add arrowroot.
Yesterday afternoon I was given the (scary) fun task of ‘babysitting’ my three younger siblings. Mom and my older sister were off to Nashville for H’s piano lesson. And dad was sick, so I was in charge. A few moments before they left- Mom asked me if I would do a ‘fall’ craft with the kids. I had been wanting to try out a few Pinterest style crafts and so…I did. And I am happy we did.
The Hand Trees…
Sorry about the blurriness… for some reason my siblings didn’t enjoy standing still for long! 🙂
The Fall Leaves Wreath
Then we went and gathered fall leaves, emphasis on color.
Have y’all done any fall-inspired crafts lately?
