The decoupage pumpkins started out that way. First a pumpkin, then a menagerie of other Halloween creatures. A few weeks after Halloween came Robin's Thanksgiving turkeys and a couple more weeks from now, who knows how many paper mache Christmas balls or Santa heads will be attempted.
I feel the same way about our treat balls, turned Shine balls, and now - for the holidays - turned snowballs!
Truth be told, I gave this idea to Heather a few weeks back. Her last name is Snow and I couldn't resist the idea of Heather giving them as stocking stuffers to all her nieces and nephews. Snow balls. Get it? "Snow" balls.
I crack me up.
I used only white and silver trinkets when making this snowball - quarters, chocolate kisses, a charm, tic tacs, fortunes, and a variety of other chatchka.
Want to try your hand at making one, but can't remember or weren't around last time I described the process? Have no fear! Listen up and I'll tell you why.
Tomorrow, thanks to Katie, I am guest blogging on a site called, Craftaholics Anonymous. In light of the holidays I am teaching Linda's reader's how to make our Shine balls. After checking out her craft on our blog tomorrow, hop on over to her site and get a refresher course on how to make a Shine or Snowball.
And, yes there is more. At the center of the Shine balls I'm featuring on Linda's blog tomorrow is a sterling silver charm that says, "Shine." Perfect for a silver chain or a black cord. I'll give one Shine ball away to her readers, but I've saved the other for one of you. Tune in tomorrow to find out how to win it.
Signing off until tomorrow when our group gathers here and then heads over to Craftaholics Anonymous.
