Four Winter DIYs

First DIY is a bucket of snowballs. I found these red bulbs at Real Deals dollar store. Six bulbs with the wire stem for $1.

Painted them white and added a fake snow mix. I sprinkled the snow mix in the wet paint.

Used some floral foam glued to the bottom of bucket and added the balls with the wire stems.

To fill in added some of Dollar Trees white foam balls from the floral section. Applied the snow mix to them too.

The bucket is from Micheal’s but you could use one of Dollar Trees metal buckets you find in the floral section.

Filled in some gaps with the white car towel from the Dollar Tree and covered in Mod Podge and the snow mix so its ‘snowy’.

Made the little sign using Popsicle sticks.

This second DIY is a candle holder or vase. Im using mine as a vase. The wood pieces came from Dollar Tree except the square, I bought a bulk pack on Amazon.

The Dollar Tree does sell the wood squares too though.

Wood glue and hot glued the wood pieces. I used the small wood blocks in the corners to give it more stability.

The longer wood blocks, the ‘Jenga’ blocks from Dollar Tree I used to lift as I was adding the yarn fur trim on the bottom.

I love this fur yarn and have used it for so many projects!

I sanded it down, painted gray and dry brushed white over it.

I also painted the wood snowflakes white. Good trick is using tape or contact paper to paint small items.

The square wood piece I just set on top as a sample for using it as a candle holder.

Im keeping as a vase with these white Poinsettias. You could insert a thinner glass vase and use real flowers.

This third DIY is a Dollar Tree vase and candle holder I painted white.

It was already a white shade but more off white and glossy, I wanted a more white matte finish.

Glued the vase with E6000 and hot glue. E 6000 will give it a more lasting bond while the hot glue sets it until the E 6000 dries.

The snowflake ribbon I found at Target. Didnt know what I was going to do with when I bought but thought it was so cute!

I glued four strips around the vase.

Covered in a clear glitter after with gloss Mod Podge and added greenery with snow covered pine cones.

Im using a strand of LED lights.

The last DIY is a winter door decor piece or where ever you want to use it. I saw a Youtuber make something similar and thought it was so fun for my door.

I have tons of pine cones!

Used some of the wood Dollar Tree mitten and snowflake stickers I had left from Christmas. Painted white and glittered.

I snow covered the pine cones.

This picture below you can see I used some pearl beads to stuff in the ribbon.

I used snowflake ribbon, some silver bead garland pieces and some foam snowflakes I had left over.

Did the ribbon and silver bead garland at different lengths. The ends are tucked under the foam snowflakes and then made a bow I glued on.

Have you made any winter DIY projects?

    I collected a lot of fresh pine cones, what I need to know is how to preserve them? I want to make some of your ideas to make the garland with them, every year a whole group of girls together to eat , exchange home made Christmas gifts. Thank you.
