Glowing Snowy Winter Wonderland

Categories: Decor, Holiday, Winter

My glowing snowy winter wonderland is a twist on traditional holiday decor. I used metallic, black, and white, with pops of cool colors. The Fairfield World Project Fleece, Poly Pellets and Poly Pellets add a delightful snowy effect to this scene. This display can be done in any color scheme, as the Oriental Trading tulle and DecoArt paints come in many colors.  It can be placed on a mantle, table or other flat surface.  Test out different sized clear containers and objects to see what combination works best.  This project has both written and video instructions. To see how I made this holiday display, watch my Glowing Snow Winter Wonderland video tutorial.
