Make a Fun Christmas Tree Garland from Foam Snowballs

Thread together foam snowballs, then frost with mica flakes to make a fun Christmas tree garland.


What You Need:

  • White yarn
  • Extra-long upholstery needle
  • 1-1/2-, 2-, 2-1/2-, and 3-inch-diameter foam balls (plan on three to five balls for each foot of garland)
  • Large cardboard box
  • Flat white spray paint
  • Mica flakes
  • Shallow cardboard box
  • Spray adhesive

How to Make It:

  1. Make garlands in no more than 6-foot lengths. Cut yarn twice the length of the finished garland, and thread it onto an upholstery needle; bring the yarn ends together to double the yarn.
  2. Randomly thread the foam balls onto the yarn, spacing the balls about 1 inch apart. Lay the garland in the bottom of a cardboard box and paint with flat white spray paint; let dry.
  3. Pour mica flakes in a shallow box. Spray the painted garland with adhesive. Immediately move the garland to the mica box and roll in the flakes; let dry. Repeat the process three times, spraying with adhesive in the first box and rolling in flakes in the second box, until the garland is coated. Let dry.
