Okay, not exactly, but it was a snow day today and we did get almost 8 inches of the heavy, wet white stuff, a perfect day to craft instead of going out!
So how about one more before the craziness sets in?
In my holiday home decoration post I had shown these little guys.
They are my wintery snow ball candle holders.
They are so cute and white with just a bit of sparkle for the day. And at night, with a battery operated candle in them, they just glow.
I decided it was the perfect day to make a big, round snow ball candle.It uses a product called Snow-tex which is awesome.
All you need is your glass candle holder, white craft paint and then either white glue and glitter or that sparkly glitter paint.
After washing your glass, paint a coat of white acrylic paint on it and let dry. Then get your best smearing groove on and apply the Snow-tex.
I just kind of smear and pat all over until it's totally covered.
Let it dry for 3-5 hours where the kids can't reach it until it's hard and set.
Then you can leave it,glitter it, or paint on your glitter paint.
And you end up with a sparkly white "snow ball." These would be so pretty lined up on a mantel ( I recommend battery operated candles for safety. ) and the best part is, that Snow-tex sticks to almost anything you could make a picture frame, or do pine cones..... You can find it year round, it's normally next to all of the glues and adhesives and varnishes and such.
