I think I’m especially liking the idea of this right now for two reasons.  Firstly, because my scheme this year is all about fresh, natural winter whites, and secondly, because we haven’t had any snow here in Ohio and I’m really missing it.

This project is really pretty simple, just some thread and some cotton balls stringed up in a row, but it’s the execution here that counts.  Draping multiple strand together, or incorporating into greenery makes all the difference and turns a simple strand of household items into a snowy accent.

Grab a darning needle (those blunt plastic ones in the yarn section of the craft store) and do this activity with kids on Christmas day!  They’ll be proud of what they’ve made and your house will be a winter wonderland.
