Using a fun mixture of only two ingredients, you can make fake dimensional snow! Here, I used it to make mini tree skirts that look like snowdrifts.

  1. Cut craft paper in the shape of a “C” to wrap around the base of the tree (size will vary depending on the size of the tree base).
  2. Mix together equal parts (1:1 ratio) of shaving cream and school glue. The mixture will create a dimensional foam-like texture.
  3. Smear the mixture to cover the paper. You can use your hands or a craft spatula (really anything used to smooth it out). It looks more realistic to leave it uneven.
  4. Add white glitter to add sparkle. This is what will pick up the light to look like fresh snow.
  5. While it’s still drying, it can be draped onto the tree base. Secure it around the back with a stapler, paperclip, etc. and leave it to dry fully.
