Snowballs in a Jar



Clearly these are not real snowballs. Had they been real snowballs, back in my day, I would have won the snowball fights, hands down, with my secret weapon prickly balls. Lol. These are sweet gum pods/cones/seeds. I always love the way they look and this last summer I grabbed up a bag from my in-law's home.

They were sitting on my table as I was painting something and I grabbed a few and started painting them white. Then I sprinkled with sparkles and bam I saw a snowball. What could I do with it now? A banner or a string of balls? Yes. And then I walked into the other  room and saw on display my snowball sign, that I had painted several years back.

I could gather up the balls into a pile for a display and set it next to the sign. Or even better what about a vintage style candy jar where you could reach in for your snowball? Yep
The snowballs set inside this jar were lackluster until I added a bit of white fiber fill aka snow.

I think this was an adorable way to showcase these little balls.  Now I'll start those snowball strings.








Happy New Year and DO NOT THINK OF THROWING THESE IN YOUR SNOWBALL FIGHT!
With love and gratitude,

Michele
