This year, I wanted to make some homemade Christmas tree ornaments. When I saw these, the decision was made. They looked so easy to make and adorable. And they are perfect for my tree which is going to be decorated in white and silver. I photographed them with Christmas lights and this is how they turned out:
If you decide to make them, you`ll need:
1 cup icing sugar (grind it in a coffee grinder so it becomes a fine powder)
Start by drawing a desired shape for your ornament on the greaseproof paper. Then turn the paper upside down. Prepare the icing by mixing the eggwhite with icing sugar to get a sticky icing. Now start piping your icing onto your sketched ornaments. Make your lines thick and generously coated in icing. Dry over night and carefully remove from paper. With this amount of icing you can make up to 10 smaller ornaments. Be very careful because they can be a bit fragile if not dried well.
And finally, place a nice ribbon to be able to hang it on your tree on Christmas Eve.
Be sure to listen to Christmas carols while doing this fun Christmas craft and do include your kids. :)
