For this project, we will need some Styrofoam balls, glue, a brush, and Epsom salt. You can also use regular salt for this project. In order to make the balls glazy, you are also going to need white glitter powder. And lastly, some sticks to hold the balls.

Step 1

To make a paper mache ball, first you need to put some glue on it using a brush. Make sure to cover the entire ball with glue. Once the ball is covered in glue, use a stick to hold it until the glue dries.

Step 2

To make a snowball, first you need to roll a ball out of snow. Once you complete that, dip the ball in the salt immediately. Make sure that the entire ball is filled with salt. When you will do that, you will look quite like a snowball.

Step 3

Now, it is time to sprinkle the glitter powder on the snowball. It will make them look more realistic. Create the snowballs in different sizes so that you can make the appearance more interesting. Once you do that, your snowballs are ready.

Put the snowballs in a container and leave it overnight to make sure the glue dries properly. It will ensure that the salt and glitters don’t fall off.

The next day, you can remove the snowballs from the sticks. That’s it; your fake snowballs are ready to use now.
