There’s something obviously magical about a white Christmas. Well, here in Charleston, there’s a better chance of a beach-day Christmas than a snowy one. So, we have to find ways to pretend.

One idea is these really simple snow ball Christmas ornaments! This is a beautiful and easy Christmas decor idea.

These ornaments were inspired by DecoArt’s Snow-Tex paint. It is a white paint with a chunky consistency that makes it look like snow! That makes this a super simple craft idea.

I think that the paint was designed to add a snow-capped look to Christmas villages, but it works great to create snow balls, too!

You have the option of adding glitter for a glittery snowball look. It totally depends on your feelings towards glitter (haha!) but glitter snowballs matched my holiday decorations really well.

I tried two types of glitter – fine glitter and confetti glitter. You can find both at craft stores. I just suggest being sure it is white or clear colored.

I used fillable clear ornament balls for this easy DIY. However, you could also use a foam or styrofoam ball. You’d just have to add a hanger using hot glue!
