As promised to many parents ...the awaited recipes from the crafts at
pagan pride day....
The pinch bowls:
1 cup flour
1 cup dried used coffee grounds
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup cold coffee
Mix all together. knead on floured surface until smooth. The kneading releases gluten; that is a protein in flour. That a fancy way of saying "glue" of the dough so go ahead and knead away... Dry on waxed paper.
Let dry for a full 24 hours before turning over.. Keep turning until dry

White flour dough
(Hey you kids help name it...)
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sand
Mix all together. Knead on floured surface. I came up with this dough when wanting to find a dough that didn't melt with the sticky days we had in the summer. Just wanted something like the coffee dough but with a lighter color. Dry on waxed paper. Let dry for a full 24 hours before turning over.. Keep turning until dry (about 5 days)
My favorite dough
1 1/2 cups ground Cinnamon
1 cup Applesauce
1/3 cup white School glue (like Elmer's)
Mix together. knead on cinnamon cover surface. Let sit 30 minutes works the best at room temperature. cut out shapes with a cookie cutter or shape it. Dry on waxed paper. Let dry for a full 24 hours before turning over.. Keep turning until dry
Coffee cans (like the international coffees cans)
Paint the cans. let dry. Decorate with ribbons, gems, shapes and etc.
You can get a wooden box and make a candle box as a gift for Yule!
foam shapes etc.
Decorate your box any way you want. Or you could get a metal box from the dollar stores or Big lots already decorated with yule type pictures. Add candles and a great gift for that witch on your yule list...
Hey some of the little extra can be charms, a pinch bowl you made... bath salts, perfume, incense or whatever. You can have all the candles the same color or all different colors. You can make special candle boxes for special people.
Relax candle box
incense in lavender
Good for that person on your list that is working overtime for yule or works at a store where it gets very busy.
Feel better candle box
Green or white (both?)
I love you candle box
Heart charms or foam shapes
