Friends! Fake snow. Let’s talk about it.
You might live in an area that gets real snow, or maybe not. Either way, you’ll most often still be using fake snow in your home this holiday season. It’s often the final touch that brings decor together.
And there are sooooo many types of fake snow to choose from. Today we’re covering all the different types, and I bet you’ll be surprised by a few of them!
Traditional or not
There are the traditional flake snow pieces that have been around for years, and those are great! I used a bunch of it last year for our dry snow globes.
Then there’s also the snow rolled out in a blanket form. Again, a classic.
Have you ever considered using crystals to add a touch of sparkling brilliance to your decor? I used a combo of crystals and powdered sugar in my gingerbread village last year.
Or maybe a white feather boa for fluffy snow like in this Christmas village shelf.
The possibilities are endless, so let’s get chatting about all the different kinds of snow!
Fake Snow Rundown
Let’s start with the classics:
I know this is the messiest kind of fake snow out there, but . . . it’s still one of my favorites. And you know what? I have a great robotic vacuum and it’s my best friend this time of year. I send it out every morning, and sometimes before bed, and my floors are snow-free. For a few hours at least.
The snow blanket roll is a perfect addition for laying Christmas villages out on, as well as other decor. No mess and easy cleanup, it’s a staple in many homes each December.
This is what I consider the last of the traditional trifecta of artificial snow most often uses. It’s another fairly mess-free option, and great for fluffing up displays.
Other Artificial Snow Options
This is such a fun alternative! Not only is it a bit less messy than flake snow, but you can also craft and do so many other things with it. Use it in conjunction with flake snow, or sparkles, or on top of a snow blanket for added dimension.
Most often, I’m adding lights under and around the snow blankets I use for decor. So, why not skip a step and purchase a snow blanket that’s pre-lit! I’m all about making things easier around Christmas time, and this helps with that!
And let’s get even more faux snow creative
These snow buttons are very farmhouse-chic. They’re absolutely adorable, easy to use and clean up, and again, can be used for crafting and sewing projects. Can they get any cuter? I think not.
I’ve used these for years to level up my Christmas decor, and they always make it shine. See what I did there? But it’s true! Use this along with other forms of faux snow, or solo for even more wow. Bonus, the kids absolutely love them and their eyes light up when they see a display in your home with “diamonds”.
These tiny rhinestones are often used for nail art, but I see unused potential as snow. Smaller than the crystals above, they’d be great as an addition to the dry snow globes I mentioned before. (Instructions for those here) or even in these Christmas Tree Terrariums.
White fluffy feathers are perfect for softening up a Christmas display. The dimension and warmth of the feathers emit those cozy Christmas vibes. Use them for this Village display idea.
Looking for something a little larger? How about these snow balls? Again, so adorable, and if you live in an area that doesn’t get real snow, they are great for a faux snowball fight!
This snow flock can be used to snow artificial trees, pinecones, and anything you can think of honeslty! You spray down the item with a bit of water, then sprinkle the flock on it, and spray it again with a bit more water to secure it to the item. Bam. You have indoor snow.
This is a great snow for crafting with. I applied it to some of my Natural Christmas Ornaments and it worked perfectly!
Not enough snow options? I have more!
