How to Make Snowball Christmas Ornaments (you Won't Believe What They

4 Materials

I have had this idea on my mind for over a month, and finally decided to give it a try and see if it works. At first - I thought it was going to end up in the "Big Fat Fail" category - but in the end - it turned out to be one of my fave Christmas Ornaments I have made this year. I bet you already have the supplies on hand that you need. :)

How to Make Snowball Christmas Ornaments...

They look incredibly like fluffy, white snowballs.

Can you guess what these snowballs are made of?

Yep, cheap plastic Dollar Store ornaments, TOILET PAPER and Modge Podge.

Just tear bit of toilet paper into 1-2" pieces, then, in small sections, paint Modge Podge on the ornament and press the paper bits into the MP. After it is covered with tissue, carefully add another layer of Mod Podge.

Yes, it will look and feel like a gloopified ball. Finally, generously roll the ornament in faux snow. Pat the snow on and squish it gently into the wet decoupaged toilet paper.

They turn out like this!

    Could you also do this directly onto styrofoam balls without the tp, then will not be breakable?

    About how many layers of toilet paper do you use to get the "fluffy" look? These look beautiful the way you have them displayed. I would love to make them for our Volunteer Fire department's Christmas tables and display like you have shown. Any hints on the display would be appreciated.
