Step 1: Materials
2. Elmer's glue (I used the store brand and it worked great (and it was cheaper))
3. Wire for the hooks. I used floral stem wire I found in the floral department at my craft store.
4. White tissue paper
5. White iridescent glitter
6. A place you don't mind getting messy and sticky (I used a large cardboard box I had flattened and sat in the middle of my floor)
7. A couple small bowls
8. A place to hang the ornaments as they dry (I tied some string between two chairs)
9. Pliers / wire cutters
Step 2: Mix the Glue
Step 3: Prep Work
Take several sheets of tissue paper and tear them into strips. They don't have to be perfectly straight or uniform.
Using the wire cutters, cut lengths of wire for the hooks. Use the pliers to bend one end, forming a hook. Stick the hooks part way into the styrofoam balls.
Now you're ready to make snowballs!
Step 4: Forming the Snowballs
Use your first strip of tissue paper to help secure the hook into the ornament. When the glue dries, the hook will essentially be glued in place if you wrap some tissue around the base of the hook.
Continue to wrap tissue paper around the ball until you have a couple layers built up. Smooth out as many air bubbles as you can. The surface won't be completely smooth, but you don't want it smooth anyways.
Next, roll the wrapped ball in the glitter. I hold it by the base of the hook when doing this and then use the jar of glitter to cover the top part of the ball.
Step 5: Snowball Fight!
Now they're ready to hang on the tree or give as gifts. You can have a snowball fight without the coldness, but watch out for hooks and getting glitter everywhere.
