Sweet and Silver Holiday Sphere


(1 Votes)


Who doesn't love the Christmas season? The entire neighborhood is covered in pretty Christmas decorations, like Sue's Sweet and Silver Holiday Sphere. To make this Christmas craft, be sure to let each layer properly dry, and be careful as you mount your silver ball on top. It is also important not to use alcohol based adhesive, as it will destroy the foam. This gorgeous glitter globe will add just the right amount of sparkle to your Christmas decor.

Sweet and Silver Holiday Sphere


  1. 1" x 6" x 12" Smoothfoam sheet
  2. 4" x 4" x 4" Smoothfoam cube

  • Cut the smoothfoam sheet into two pieces – one- 5" x 5" and the other 6" x 6".
  • Stack and glue those pieces together along with a 4" cube using a tacky glue.
  • After the glue dries, paint the smoothfoam base with black acrylic paint.
  • Sponge silver acrylic paint over the black to create the glittery coating.
  • Paint the dowel rod with silver acrylic paint.
  • Lightly sand the seams of the 6" circle.
