Boughs of Snowballs

For decorations that would make Frosty proud, hang spheres of snow on a tree in the yard. This project is best when the snow is neither powdery nor slushy; it's easiest if you use a snowball-making tool.


  • Sticks
  • Wire cutters
  •  Floral wire 
  • Snowball maker


  1. Step 1

    Fold a 5-inch length of floral wire in half; bend the fold into a hook; twist the bottom ends around a twig that's about 4 inches long.

  2. Step 2

    Stick the twig's other end in the snow.

  3. Step 3

    With the snowball maker, scoop up snow around twig; lift and squeeze, packing a snowball around the twig.
