Faux Snowball Porch Decor

Merry Christmas!! We're in the thick of it now! ;-) A month ago, Nicole Wright shared this super cute idea for porch decor. Being in the market for ideas to decorate our large porch, I immediately said, "I'm going to make those too!" I finally finished my version of them and I now have a lovely basket of snowballs by the front door. My wisecracking husband said I should just use real snowballs because it's 20 degrees and snowing now but where's the fun in that?

I had the wire basket and I picked up the styrofoam balls at Wal-Mart as well as a bottle of Mod Podge. I had a big jar of coarse Diamond Dust glitter that worked great for my sparkle. (Nicole used Epsom salts and Rock Candy Distress Glitter for her snowballs). I brushed each ball with the Mod Podge and then rolled it around in a pie tin of glitter. Let it dry and you're done! Super easy.

Using the Stacked Snowflakes die, I cut several flakes out of matboard (some covered with silver Deco Sheets) and glued them to twine. I hand lettered the tag sign and added the scalloped edge on the bottom. I really like the festive touch this project adds to my porch! Thanks Nicole for the inspiration! ;-)

I am also entering this into the Frilly & Funkie challenge Home For the Holidays! Be sure to go check it out!
