This snow is made up of small little gel beads. You mix the powder with water and stir and stir until the beads rehydrate and look like snow. They feel weird and they are incredibly messy. I think this stuff would be great to mix in with your container plants to hold water in the soil longer. In fact, that is exactly what I plan on doing with the rest of this stuff!
But today, I had a big bowl of gellified goo with nothing to do. So I did what any crafty maven would do… Dipped some pinecones in it and made snow-covered, Ballard knock-off ornaments!
The little gel beads will loose their moisture and turn back to powder, but for now, they look pretty and sparkly on the tree.
Here is the comparison:
If you don’t happen to have a bunch of fake snow lying about, (What? You don’t???) I think you could use sea salt to create the same effect…or glitter…but that’s too predictable and boring :). I like the idea of salt better.
