How to make faux snow

I have lived in several different parts of the country during my life and no matter where I am there's one thing that always puts me in the Christmas mood - Snow!

So today I want to share with you a little secret on how to make your own faux snow to add to all of your altered projects this winter!

Supplies Needed:
~ White paint
~ Salt - Coarse salt works and looks best in my opinion so think Kosher Salt
~ Disposable paper plate
~ paint brush - any kind will do

Step 1: pour a good amount of salt on your plate.

Step 2: Add white paint and stir with your brush until it looks like mud (when it looks like mud it's perfect)



Step 3: Apply it to your altered project and allow it to dry!

Yes - it's that easy!

Here's my finished altered bird house with my added snow!


Now what are you waiting for - go make your own snow!
