Looking for a way to include your dog in your holiday decorating? These adorable paw print ornaments from Cornflower Blue Studio are a super easy DIY Christmas project for you AND your pup! 


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 are stirring 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 go to your dog 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!

This is so very cool! I am going to do this with my nephew (3yrs. old) and and his puppy for a Christmas present for his mommy!

So I made these tonight!! They're looking good but I have no idea how you got the dog to put his paw print so nicely on the dough lol!! Mine don't look at all like the photo above but they turned out pretty good! Thanks for the fun idea!

Once the dough has cooked, how long can it be stored in the refrigerator? I'd like to get paw prints from other family member's dogs but this might take a few days. Thanks, bb

An intriguing discussion is worth comment.
There's no doubt that that you need to write more on this subject matter, it may not be a taboo matter but typically folks don't speak about these
subjects. To the next! All the best!!
