How to make Indoor Snowballs


Hello everyone!
We had our first taste of winter this weekend, with cold winds and even
a little sprinkling of snow.  Not enough to collect on the ground, but
enough to inspire me to create some pretty snowballs of our own.

I remember making fake snow with my mom when I was younger and
still living at home, and decorating logs with it for fun Christmas displays.
This year - as I prepare  our home for Christmas - I made some cute little
snowballs to go with our theme, which shall remain a secret until next week...;)

These are so simple to make and look like the real thing, don't you think? 

This is what you will need:
Different size Styrofoam balls
Epson Salts
Shredded Snow
Modpodge or Glue
I purchased the balls, salts and shredded snow at the DS. :)
  
1. Generously cover Styrofoam with ModPodge/glue and sprinkle the shredded snow over it (use a tray to catch all the excess).
2. Pack 'snow' with your hands to make sure it adheres.
3. Apply more glue or Modpodge and generously sprinkle Epson Salts over Styrofoam ball; allow to dry and display.
Super easy, right?
This is such a perfect way to fill a bowl or hurricane glass and
you can display it past Christmas and through the winter. 


I am also excited to join 30 incredible bloggers for the

Dec 2 - Dec 6th.

  I can't wait and hope you can join me...:)

Have a beautiful day and keep warm.

  15. Nice Post!, You made a very beautiful snowball with using polystyrene balls. After you post, I'm thinking to make snowballs for this Christmas with polystyrene. These balls make a good Christmas because these balls create snow in my room.
