Crayon shavings or chunks in glass ornaments, heated up to melt and swirl. I definitely would prefer this over the acrylic paint that you have to drain after swirling, messing up the paint's effect so that it blends too much. This is a definite have-to this year!
Made these snowballs by dipping syrofoam balls into a bowl of watered-down white glue ~~ then rolling them in another bowl of clear glitter. We used bamboo skewers (sticks) to hold onto them and stuck them into a block of styrofoam to dry. The glitter will get clumpy from the glue…but that’s good, it give the “snowballs” a more realistic look.
