Candles and Talc

Prepare sparkles (preferably gold, silver, blue, or pearlescent) to produce dry snow. Also put a kitchen grater, baby talc without fragrances (powder), a few white paraffin candles next to it.

Put the candle in the fridge for half an hour or in the freezer for 10-15 minutes so that it will freeze well. After the time, rub it on a small section grater. To create a flickering effect, add small glitters to the chips (color at your discretion).

The resulting composition does not leave traces, does not dissolve in water and does not change shape upon contact with it. As a rule, artificial snow of this kind is used to decorate Christmas balls and Christmas trees, painting windows and window sills.

In most cases, artificial snow on the basis of foam looks unnatural. It is used to decorate spruce branches, directly of the spruce / fir tree, window sills, painting of balls and their filling, creating small hail and crackers.

Paper towels (toilet paper)

Take white paper towels or toilet paper, rip into small pieces. Grind to crumb in a convenient way white natural soap, place the composition on the bottom of a ceramic or glass container. Place pieces of paper / towels on top.

Put the bowl in the microwave for 30-45 seconds, monitor the condition of the paper fibers. They should become more fluffy and upbeat. Soap, in turn, will acquire a softer and more pliable texture.

After the expiration date, remove the composition, pour in a little filtered water and mix everything with a fork. Refrigerate for 3 minutes, then rub again.

It is from this snow that you can make mini-snowmen, play snowballs, decorate any surfaces and objects.

Eggshell

Cook a few eggs with a white (not red) shell. Clean them, remove the films. Place in a tight plastic bag, put on a hard surface and crush with a rolling pin into powder. When the shell is ready, you can mix it with glitter, and then proceed to the scenery. Artificial snow is attached to PVA glue on sprigs of spruce / fir trees, windows are decorated with them, creating various patterns. The composition is used for packing transparent Christmas balls.

Baby diapers

Strange as it may sound, artificial snow can be made from disposable diapers or white diapers. The fact is that such attributes absorb moisture due to the sodium polyacrylate contained in the composition. In the swollen state, the drug looks like real snow.

To properly perform the procedure, pull out cotton-like packing from diapers / diapers. Tear it into very small particles, then place it in a deep bowl. Begin slowly pouring cold purified water and simultaneously knead the mixture with your hands. In the end, you get a decoration that is difficult to distinguish from real snow. The attribute is used to create snowballs, snowmen, holiday decorations, suggesting the presence of peculiar snowdrifts.

Baking soda and shaving foam

Transfer the soda to a small bottle so that it is convenient to mix it with other ingredients. In a deep container squeeze out a bottle of foam and simultaneously pour soda, and then immediately mix. Act intermittently: poured, mixed, poured again. On 1 cylinder of foam there are one and a half packs of soda. When mixing is complete, put the mixture in the fridge for 5 minutes. Then take it out and add glitter for decoration. A feature of this method is that the finished snow smells of frosty freshness, if you pick up the foam with the appropriate aroma.

Polyethylene

Very often, housewives use dummy polyethylene, which is wrapped in household appliances during transportation for better cargo safety. Take 1 square. m material, twist it into a tight tube, then rub it on a grater with small divisions. Combine the resulting air mass with pearly glitter, add 3-5 bags of potato starch and some filtered water. Stir until the composition is homogeneous.

After that, dry it on the battery or in direct sunlight. Gut a little with a fork, then proceed to the scenery. The composition looks very beautiful and natural on fluffy artificial Christmas trees and natural firs. In order to properly attach artificial snow, lubricate the treated area with PVA and then sprinkle it with the composition.

Toothpaste

The method is more suitable for spraying windows, mirrors, balls, Christmas tree. As a rule, a stencil dipped in water is applied to the surface for better adhesion.
