DIY Snowballs December 4, 2014 In Texas we don’t get to experience too much snow, so I loved these decorative handmade snowballs and thought it would make a fun DIY post! No matter where you live, these snowballs will make a fun and whimsical addition to your Christmas decor and can even be displayed beyond the holidays. Without having to get your hands cold, these realistic looking snowballs are an easy and perfect craft to make with your little ones on a rainy afternoon. Supply list: Styrofoam balls of varying sizes Epson salt or rock salt Brush Craft glue Shredded snow (found in most craft stores) Fine white glitter (optional) Trays or bowls to contain mess Directions: Cover Styrofoam ball with a generous amount of glue Place in bowl with ‘shredded snow’ and cover Styrofoam ball completely Pour a generous amount of glue over ‘snowball’ and cover with Epson or rock salt Optional: while glue is still wet, add white fine glitter Allow to dry before display Create varying sized snowballs for a more realistic display. Place them in a bowl for a beautiful centerpiece or in an old bucket as part of your front porch display, and enjoy your never-melt snowballs.
