As winter seams to want to disguise as a very rainy spring, with temperatures so high that snow is no option in the near future, I decided to make some snowballs and hang them on branches.
This is a job for people who love making a bit of a mess and are not afraid of sticky fingers.
How to do them:
Material: 1 sheet of white paper
plastic balls as you find them in your roll-on
Planatol A or white PVA glue
pieces of string, 25 cm long ( I used some Lurex)
- Shred the paper in a paper shredder that does cross-cuts.
- Dilute the glue with water to the consistency of condensed milk.
- Spread a little bit of glue onto the plastic ball.
- Fold the thread in half and glue first. Fix it by glueing a few paper cuts crosswise over the first centimeter.
- Cover the whole ball with paper cuts, making sure to thoroughly spread the glue so that the cuts stick properly (This is the messy part!).
- Continue until the ball is covered completely. It does not matter if there are small gaps left as you can see on the photo.
