Mod-podge Snowballs

Okay, I don't mean to whine but right now I am in foreign territory, blog-wise. I have had quite a stressful last four days. What happened is when I tried posting on my blog last week, I couldn't get Window Live Writer (the program I use to write my blogposts) to publish the post. :( Not a good thing for someone like me, who has no rest until the matter is solved. :(

So, now the matter isn't solved but many hours later I realize my computer isn't the problem. (thank goodness!) But, some people from Microsoft decided to change some things that would make it impossible for bloggers use WLW to publish to Blogger. I know, it sounds confusing but the bottom line is, I need to resort to use bloggers online platform to write this blogpost.

Anyway, I could vent some more, but let's see how it goes.. I have no idea how it will turn out so if it looks completely different from my other posts, rest assured, you are at the right place. :)

I’ve had these green grass balls stuck in storage for awhile now and thought I’d try to make them useful and perhaps turn them into snowballs.

Here’s how I did it..
First I wrapped toilet paper around the ball..

Then I used Mod podge and brushed it evenly over the toilet paper…

I dumped some fake snow into a pan and rolled the ball around until everything was covered with snow. (it almost seemed as if I was rolling a snowball in real snow!)

I used the snowballs to decorate an old Coca-Cola box and added some bottles.

They would also look great on their own in a glass jar or with any winter arrangement. You could use any balls to do this, such as foam or plastic. I even thought about using balloons, though I’m not sure what would happen should they burst!
I hope you are all having a happy holiday season!



  1. Lovely... and wow.. if they really don't look real, I don't know what does? I tell you what. It'd be nice to see some of the real stuff, wouldn't it?

    Thanks again, for yet another great idea!!

  2. These are great Mary, they look so realistic!! Thanks for sharing!
