I'm thinkin' snow....
Saturday, September 27, 2008



These are so much fun to make! Plus they look great clustered together with some pine sprays and berries. A Prim accent that will carry you thru the holidays and into winter.

I use styrofoam balls as a base. Then I cover them with drywall compound--not spackle. You will have to really stir up the compound. Then the fun begins...it's messy--like playing in the mud. Just cover the styrofoam with the compound and sit to dry. While still wet, I sprinkle with mica flakes or whatever glittery thing I have around at the time. Turn them often, so they don't get a big ol' flat bottom!

I have even used toothpicks to stack three of them for a little snowguy. You can dress him up and even use twigs for arms, clay for a nose, and small stones for his buttons (or cloves)

So there's your snowball lesson for the day! Now go do your homework! There WILL be a test!

    I love these Shari....I made some with styro balls and paper mache - but this sounds so much easier!
    It probably is more reasonably to use the compound too.
