They might be a little fragile for most people. And if you live in a humid area, impractical to store. Also, I'm pretty sure rats or mice would be drawn to the sugar, if someone stored their ornaments in an attic that might have those pests.

I make ornaments from baker's clay every year...haven't sold any, but I'm running out of tree space so I might start doing that soon icon_biggrin.gif The salt in the recipe keeps bugs from eating the ornaments (and dogs too, you should have seen her face when she tried it).
