Faux Snowballs!


                                                        I have an idea for my mantle this year.

                                               The idea just so happens to include snowballs!

                                                                        Cajun Snowballs!



                                                        I started with some smooth foam balls.



                                                         Smooth works best....trust me :)


                                             These just happen to have handy dandy holes.


                                                                     School glue.


                                            Just paint on your glue and sprinkle your sparkle~


                                                                             Let dry.


                                                              The perfect snowball!


                                                     Step one of operation mantle complete.

                                                                Many more steps to go~

                                            I just may finish them all so I can join the Party here.

                                                                  Hope to see you there :)

                                                                               Susie~

  3. Oh, so darling. . . Cajun snowballs! Makes me think of the Cajun Night Before Christmas. Do honest-to-goodness Louisiana folks enjoy that book as much as the rest of us do? Or is it only good for those of us who don't know any better?
