Looking for quick and inexpensive holiday craft projects?  Here’s one:

Faux Snowballs:

wax paper

gloves

styrofoam balls

joint compound & putty knife

mod podge & glitter

 

First, lay out your wax paper somewhere for your snowballs to dry.  Roll your styrofoam balls on a hard surface to condense them a little.  Not too hard, we don’t want to squish them.  Now slip your gloves on and smear on the joint compound with your putty knife.  If you get “peaks” that’s ok.  It makes them look a little more realistic I think.  When you have them covered like you like them, sit them on the wax paper to dry.  This will take a while.  When they are completely dry, you can sand down some of the peaks if you’d like.  Next step is the fun part.   Brush on a coat of mod podge and then sprinkle with glitter.  And you’re all done!

 

These would make cute little ornaments if you had the smaller styrofoam balls. 

 

Here’s a couple more pics of the ones I made:
