* Faux Snowballs *
I've been wanting to make these for some time now, but just had to wait till all my Christmas decor was up. It was so quick and easy. I had everything on hand except for the Styrofoam balls, which I found at the dollar store. Super inexpensive...I love it!
What you need:
Styrofoam balls
Fake snow
White glue
Water down a bit of glue, put your Styrofoam ball on a scewer and paint on the glue quickly.
Once painted on, roll around in the fake snow.
Sprinkle on a bit of glitter.
Place them in a cup to dry. Mine are on top of the fridge so my boys couldn't get to them.

Finally, place them in a container to show them off. I use my glass hurricanes for everything. They look so pretty all stacked together. And better yet, they won't melt like real snowballs.

Here they are by my little Snowbird.


  1. I love the everlasting snowballs and the darling little bird. Great tutorials. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. What a cute idea! And so easy!

  3. Tanya, I wanted to let you know that I was planned to feature the glitter Bird on my blog tomorrow ( with links and credits going back to you. Keep up the great work! John
