First, I bought this very gold cherub figurine at a consignment shop for $5. He stands about 20" tall.
I toned him down a bit with Rustoleum Heirloom White paint, but not the spray paint. I used an almost dry brush and sort of dabbed the paint on lightly.
Now he looks like this...
I had a bag of Dollar Tree foam balls I purchased recently to make some sort of Christmas ornament.
Ten to a bag.
I squeezed them a little so they weren't so perfectly round.
Then I stuck them on skewers and stood them up in some florist foam. (Also from the dollar store).
Then I painted the snowballs with Heirloom white.
When they were dry, I poured some mica snow on a paper plate, and diluted some Mod Podge in a baggy with water.
Then I stuck the foam balls on a stick in the glue baggy mixture and then rolled them in the mica snow on the paper plate. If a spot seemed to bare, I sprinkled a little more snow on with my fingers.
Here are my ten crafty snowballs.
For photo purposes I have posed my little snowballs with a vintage Tonka dump truck and a vintage look snowman figurine.
Still crafting and pre-decking!
