Here's two pictures of our Christmas crafts we did with the kids. We made snowball soaps out of grated up Ivory soap bars. I won't be making those again. The kids got kinda messy with them.
Then we covered styrofoam balls with gumdrops. I love the way they look when they covered tightly in them. They hold up also. I have a larger one that I made a few years back. We pull it out and hang it on our fan/light at Christmastime. I love it! The ball without any gumdrops is Sams creation. He did have gumdrops on most of his, but then decided he liked the "spikey ball" better.
