READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

This is a fun craft for the kids. I found this on the web it is by a shirleyt. This calls for 1 skeleton key but since it is not on the "ingredient list" I had to put it up here.

How sweet! I think this is going into my plan for holiday decorating. I do have some children in mind that would love it.
