"Christmas Snowball Ornament. Made with Creative Paper Clay an air drying clay, over a styrofoam ball. Decorated with gold trim, glitter and Mod Podge, and acrylic snowflakes. Very easy and fast to make. Light weight. A project that can be done at any age. Creative paperclay dries quickly and can be painted (like this one) when dry. To make the ornament look as close as possible to a real cold winter snowball, the clay is applied in patches."

Materials List

  • Gold plastic ball ornament
  •  Delight™ from Creative Paperclay
  • Paperclip
  • Glue
  • Sealer with golden glitter incorporated into it
  • Acrylic snowflake table scatter
  • A piece of gold ric-rac
  • A bow
  • A piece of ribbon

Instructions

  1. So, I started with this gold plastic ball.  I covered it with Delight™ and purposely left the bumps so it would look more like a real icy snowball.  The kind you make on a wet snowy day.  Yes, here in Canada we have names for the several varieties of snow we get.  LOL.

  2. I also made a new hook by inserting half of a paperclip into the top part and secured that with a dab of glue. 

  3. Once the Delight was dry I covered the top part of the snowball with some shiny sealer that already has a golden glitter incorporated into it.

  4. Once the sealer dried I glued on some acrylic snowflake table scatter, a piece of gold ric-rack and a bow.

  5. Finally, I strung a piece of ribbon through the hook to hang the snowball from the tree's branch.
