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.
DIY making iced branches. It does take some special ingredients (like the diamond vase filler) and can purchase from this site. I don't know if you can get it anywhere else, but these are beautiful and the prices for the filler or crystals isn't bad.
