Valentine Hearts: The Borax Way
is the last part of my Valentine triology, which means that
the day of flowers & chocs
(with any luck) is nearly upon us.
This little project is another Quick & Easy one.
All you need is some Borax powder (detergent aisle of the supermarket)
A Kettle full of hot water
Jars ( clean/no lids)
Pipe cleaners shaped like hearts
Bamboo or lolly sticks
and 12 hours.
I spotted this 'gem' of an idea over on Pinterest, & thought this
would be fun for me to do.
Oh come on!
Kids have Jungle Gyms & Roller Sneakers, they won't miss
this little project.
While I am at it,
I am also claiming back Space Hoppers & Hula Hoops
for us kidults.
They shall be used for fun, not exercise!
Maggie & Miranda over at
Club Chica Central
have been experimenting with Borax, & have produced
a great How-To post.
But, before you all dive over to check it out,
let me just warn you that
a) this project is very addictive
b) the suggested 1/3 cup of Borax in a jar of boiling water
needs adjusting according to the size of your jar.
c) if after an hour it looks like nothing is happening,
gently stir up the bottom of your jar.
