I love snow. I love to watch it fall especially when the flakes are really large. Problem is I live in the south and I may see a pretty snowfall once every three years or so. As I continue to share my Christmas decorations you are going to see some snow here and there. Of course it is all faux.
I thought I would share some simple ways to create snow. I found a couple ideas from fellow bloggers that I did not know about and you may not either.
I love flocked trees and these are so easy to do yourself.
See how it looks like a blob of fallen snow is stuck on the branch? It is so easy to create that look.
Just grab you a jar of this from Michael's or another craft store and brush it on. That's it. I did not know about this stuff until my friend told me about it.
But first you can spray this stuff all over the tree or whatever you are flocking that this other friend told me about. You can pick this up at your big box store. Just spray it on however thick you want it and let it dry. Easy peasy.
This is what I got with the spray and the first photo, too.
The easiest and cheapest way to create the look of snow on the ground is with a snow blanket that you can pick up for about $2.50 a bag at a craft store. I have tucked that stuff here and there.
This snow is a snow blanket that I have used the last few years and I just roll it up and save it for the next year. It also has some loose faux snow flakes thrown on top that I bought in a bag. It's just chopped plastic.
This is just cotton balls pulled apart.
For jars and containers salt or Epsom salt works great.
Most of you probably already knew all these tricks, but maybe there is someone like me who didn't know about a couple of them.
Yay, the sun is out today!
