Penny’s Tips Volume 118

Hi everyone.  Do you like this hat better than the one I wore last week?

Sammy and mom are teaching a class tomorrow at Cat Scouts on how to make a paw print ornament so I thought I could do a class right here. If you are a Cat Scout please close your eyes or maybe don’t tell Sammy you saw this post.

All you need is a cup of flour, a cup of salt and 3/4 cup water. Then you stir them all together and roll it out.  Mom put it on a cutting board covered with wax paper so it would be easy for us to walk on.  Then she used a glass to cut a circle around the print.  And she poked a little hole for the string at the top.

  Then you dry them out in a 200 degree F oven for about 3 hours. Mom put ours on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. If you don’t use parchment paper , you may need to keep them in the oven for 30 extra minutes. The last 30 minutes, you should flip them over to be sure the back is dry too.

When they are done, you can decorate them however you want. I glued a shiny 2021 Penny to the back and I painted the front pink.

It still needs to be coated with a clear Krylon. You can also use clear nail polish.  As you can see it is the only ornament on the tree so far. Mom is slacking.

  1. TBT is sure not THAT creative. We have big bought stuff for the big tree and small stuff for our own little cat tree, but none handmade!

  2. Wow wow wow what a creative mama you have how nice now that you can walk all over the tree with your paw prints!

  3. So adorable. You and your mom are most clever.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. Scritches all around and my best to your mom. ♥

  4. Your mom is never a slacker in my estimation. 🙂 And thanks for this tip! I want to get prints and the dough I bought is way too elastic. They impressions don’t stay.

  5. Thatis so nice of you to share how to make that ornament. We might see if Mom will help us make some too.

  6. Charlee: “A tree could do worse than to have its only ornament be a cat paw. I’m just saying.”
    Chaplin: “Hey do you think we could eat the part of the flour that doesn’t end up turning into an ornament? Asking for a friend.”
