Artificial Snow

I was looking for a way to jazz up some Christmas decorations, etc. and found this quick, easy artificial snow recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup talcum powder

Directions

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.

Ivory flakes are not available but 1 or 2 bars of Ivory soap grated with a cheese grater plus 1 or 2 tbs of corn starch whipped in a large mixer bowl with water makes excellent snow.
