No snow? No problem! We made a bunch of these Borax snowflakes, so we’re all set for our California winter.
Full instructions are here, and they are, of course, super cheap and easy (it’s just Borax and water!), which is the exact opposite effect you get from these super fancy snowflakes when you hang them on your tree or in a window, or use them to pretty-up plain gift wrapping because you accidentally bought an industrial-sized roll of kraft paper that will last into the next millennium, genius.
Remember when I went through a spray-everything-gold phase? Now I can’t stop crystallizing things in Borax.
(The baby tried to crystallize himself in Borax, which I don’t recommend, not only because you’ll have to call poison control but because it doesn’t even work.)
