For Christmas this year I am making my own snowman head ornaments and I need a large amount of Snow-Tex, but the cost of it being $3.99 for a meager 4 oz jar is not happening! I decided to try my own recipe for it fresh from the dollar store – well mostly anyway.
This product is simple, easy, and will most certainly save you money! It’s just two simple ingredients:
- White sand
- White acrylic paint
Mix sand and paint until you get a thick, spreadable paste and voila! You won’t be able to see a difference – except in your wallet!
On the left DIY version and on the right $3.99 4 oz jar of Snow-Tex!
Tomorrow is our company Christmas party and my section was assigned to coordinate the activities. I decided to create this pyramid of Snowman cups so they could toss “snowballs” at them to knock them down.
These are cute and easy to make; it was 4 years old tested and approved! 😉
- Orange craft foam sheets
- Black craft foam sheets
- Glue stick
- Hole punchers in two sizes
- White paper cups
- Foam craft balls
- Punch larger holes and glue on to cups for eyes.
- Cut carrot shapes in varrying sizes and glue on to cups.
- Punch smaller holes and rub a generous amount of glue on to the cup in a mouth shape and add the dots to shape the mouth.
I did 15 to stack them about 14 inches high.
Merry Christmas and Happy crafting! ⛄☃️
