DIY Paw Print Christmas Tree Ornaments
Let Mittens help to spread Christmas cheer!
Looking for a way to include your cat in on holiday decorating? These adorable paw print ornaments are a super easy DIY Christmas project for you AND your cat!
Mix 1/2 cup cornstarch and 1 cup baking soda in a saucepan. Slowly add 3/4 cup of water, while stirring.
Place on a medium burner and stir constantly. Mixture will begin to thicken – make sure that you strirring to the bottom of the pot, picking up the thickened mixture that is down by the burner.
Once it has come together as a doughy ball, remove it from the heat and let it sit until you can comfortably handle it. When it has cooled, knead it for a minute or so, until it is soft and pliable.
Section into pieces, roll into balls, and press flat.
Next, you will have to sneak over to your (preferrably sleepy) cat and press his paw into the dough firmly and as evenly as possible. Use a toothpick to make a small hole for your string to go through at the top of the ornament.
Finally, bake at 250 degree oven for 30 minutes on a tray lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Thread with festive string and hang on your tree!
