Making Fake Snow

Share |

While some of us struggle with removing the excessive amounts of snow, others are suffering the lack of it! If you live in a region where snow is a rarity, and the sun shines 365 days a year, yet you still want to have a real traditional Christmas with snow – welcome!


Tips on DIY Fake Snow

If you live somewhere in Alaska or Siberia, where snow is a usual sight you might be wondering who might need to make fake snow, this stuff is disgusting already! However, some of us live on the sunny side of the world, and the lack of snow might be a problem for conventional celebration of winter holidays. Of course, this won’t help if you want to cover the whole yard with snow, but might actually work with mini craft projects. Today we are going to go over several types of DIY fake snow, so stick around!


So, pick an item that you want to cover with fake snow, lets suppose it is a Christmas tree. Among other things that you will need are: Table salt, Talcum powder, Glue, Liquid starch, Blue food coloring, Laundry soap flakes or potato flakes, Glitter, Sodium polyacrylate, Water. So one of the ideas is to make snow out of salt and talcum powder and you will need to add the essential sparkle to the fake snow mix cup each of table salt and talcum powder, then spray the tree branches with craft glue and sprinkle the mixture on the object and shake off the excess.


Another idea is to make snow from liquid starch, laundry soap, blue food coloring and some optional glitter. Mix 1-1/3 cups liquid starch with 4 cups of laundry soap flakes and add drops of blue food coloring. Then mix everything well, and if you want your snow to be glittery – add some glitter. Then apply this mix to the object and wait till it is dry!


The third project on fake snow deals with sodium polyacrylate, water in mixture. If you wonder where you can obtain sodium polyacrylate, it is sold in powder or granulated form in any garden supply store or alternatively look in the soil treatment section. If you are still clueless, you can also obtain it by removing the granules from the inside of disposable diapers. So you need to mix the sodium polyacrylate, water to make a desirable effect. But if all of the above seems to be too complicated, soap flakes or instant potate flakes will do their job just as well!
