I made a winter project for the Pink Paislee blog and I wanted to share it with you here as well. I meant to post it yesterday, but life got in the way and I had to work at the office, so I have it for you today.
To create your snowballs is very simple. You just pierce the center of a punched circle and push it into the styrofoam. I didn't go with a specific pattern. I just simple pushed them in next to each other and slowly filled it out until I couldn't see the styrofoam anymore. For a fun detail and extra dimension I would pierce a small circle from a hole punch before the larger size.
The rest of the supplies you need are a small circle punch, a hole punch, push pins, styrofoam balls, and a piece of Jack Frost from Pink Paislee's Tinsel Town line.
To create the sign I used the Vintage Pop Alphas and filled in the image with a sharpie to help it stand out. I then covered a chipboard star with some Silver Berry Pixee Stix glitter, added my price tag, and set it up in the middle of my planter. I stuffed paper and covered it with some white felt, and then layered my snowballs around it.
This would be a fun decor item for the mantle with extra snowballs amongst the planter. I think I'm going to make ornaments for my tree too. All you'd need to do is create a loop and tie a bow, and the use a push pin and attach the bow to the top of the snowball, and use the loop to hang it from your tree.
I had a lot of fun with this project and it really made me anxious for Thanksgiving to be over so that I can take down the pumpkins and fall decor and break out my Christmas boxes. I think I have four of them, lol.
I have another winter/Christmas decor project with the Tinsel Town line that will be in the 30 days of gifts newsletter from Lifetime Moments. I think my project will post tomorrow. The newsletter started on Wednesday but if you'd like to sign up and get a daily gift or project idea you can do so here. I can't wait to share that project with you! I can post it after it is shared on the newsletter.
With all this Pink Paislee love you should also jet over to the Studio Calico blog. There is a delicious Tinsel Town prize pack as part of the Sneak Night Giveaway and it includes Pink Paislee press-ons, stamps, and ribbon in addition to the yummy paper goodness. Get over there quick!
Have a great Friday! It's almost the weekend! :)
