Super Simple Snowballs for Home Decor

During the winter I love to decorate with winter white. I love infusing winter and the beauty of snow into my decor with quick and simple projects. Today I am going to show you how to make snowballs for your home. That's right!
You can make snowballs to decorate your winter home and they will never melt. They last forever! This is going to be fun!
The supplies for this project may even be some that you have on hand. I used a roll of white pipe cleaners (you can piece together the sticks if you have those) and some styrofoam balls. You can use any size foam ball you wish, but keep in mind that the larger the ball, the more pipe cleaners you will need. My favorite part about this project is that just about any big box store or craft store carries these. You can even find them at the dollar tree sometimes! You will also need a hot glue gun and glue sticks.
To begin this project you will need to poke a hole into the styrofoam ball. Then, add a dab of hot glue into the hole and insert one end of your pipe cleaner. Let it set up until it is dry and secure. Then you will coil the pipe cleaner around the ball and finish it off the same way you started! See the post for a better view of the coiling.
Aren't they so cute in this winter vignette? This is also a fun craft to do with the kids. Have fun!

    How were the other ones made?? Looks like scrunched fabric? Forgive me if I overlooked it.
