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:
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
Shallow cardboard box
How to Make It:
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.
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.
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.
