      What You Need:
      White crafts paint or latex interior paint
      Waxed paper or paper plate
      Sea sponge
      Scrap paper
      Red glass-ball ornaments
      Jute string

      Instructions:
      1. Prepare the paint. Pour a small amount of white paint onto a piece of waxed paper or a paper plate.

      2. Create a “clothesline” for drying the ornaments. Tie a length of jute between two sturdy supports, making sure the line is taut.

      3. Use sponge to paint ornaments. Dip a dampened sea sponge into the paint, then pat it on a piece of scrap paper to remove the excess paint.

      Pat the sponge onto an ornament, being careful not to cover the ball entirely so that some of the red color still shows through. Hang the ornaments on jute line to dry.

      4. For a solid-snow effect: Submerge the bottom half of an ornament in the paint, holding the ball at an angle. Let the excess paint drip back into the can.

      Hang the ornament to dry.
