Lint Dough

This is a new one to me. Have you ever made modeling dough using dryer lint? Me neither, but this cute feller was crafted from a lint (and a few more ingredients)! Yes sir, this cute elephant was made using dryer lint, water, flour, and vegetable oil.

To get the exact recipe, because if you're going to make a lint elephant, you really should get it right, go to RealSimple's page explaining the easy enough process.

When you think about it, elephants are gray, and dryer lint is gray, unless you just dried your son's orange Denver Broncos fleece blanket (then it is orange, very orange). Elephants are cute animals with nice features (trunk and big ears) that would lend themselves to be crafted out of a sticky lint mess.

So, the next time you have a wad of dryer lint in your hands, what are you going to do? Throw it in the trash? Toss it in the compost pile? Or maybe make a fun elephant?

Please share any stories of dryer lint dough. We'd also love to see pictures!
