I was looking for a way to jazz up some Christmas decorations, etc. and found this quick, easy artificial snow recipe.
Mix together. Sprinkle mixture over any area you want to decorate after it has been spread with liquid starch or a mixture of 1/2 glue and 1/2 water. Let dry.
Hint: The more sugar, the more sparkle.

Will this attract ants?
This sounds decidedly better than my "snow" recipe from the 1960s. I was young and very foolish then and I mixed Breeze laundry detergent and glommed it on my cuckoo clock. Needless to say it ruined the finish. I was smart enough to learn from that experience.
Thought someone would get a chuckle out of my silliness.
Boy if this does attract ants, they will definitely have a smorgasbord. :o)
Salt would also work and wouldn't attract ants. Same color, same consistency.
When I was little my mother used Ivory FLAKES, and whipped them up with water to make snow on our real Christmas tree---- of course we haven't found Ivory FLAKES for years and years. Mom says that Ivory Snow doesn't work the same. But it sure was cool back then.
I think you can get mica flakes from the Vermont Country Store, or something old fashioned like that now.
