INEXPENSIVE, SIMPLE, FAST, KID FRIENDLY & AWESOME RESULTS are some of the words that come to mind about THIS project!

After all the decorations have been put away for another year, the house seems a little bare and empty.  Here's a project that brings the cold, snowy winter weather inside and helps decorate the house through January and February!  


Step 1: Simple Supply List (You probably have everything already!)

If you do any crafting you probably have all you need to complete this simple project.

SNOWBALL SUPPLY LIST:
POLYESTER BATTING- scraps and pieces work wonderful.
THREAD- to tack the batting
NEEDLE
PINS
AEROSOL SPRAY GLUE- works best as it does not absorb into the fibers.
EPSOM SALTS- used for soaking feet and sore muscles, can be found in the health care department.
GLITTER- optional 


SNOW COVERED PINECONE SUPPLIES:
PINECONES- any size, any shape will do. 
WHITE GLUE- any type & we will be watering it down for easy application.
OLD SMALL PAINTBRUSH- for applying the glue
EPSOM SALTS-  used for soaking feet and sore muscles, can be found in the health care department.
GLITTER- optional
PAPER- to catch the extra granules or you may choose to use a plastic bag to shake the pinecones and snowballs in
