File this one under “clever Christmas decor ideas.”  Using two of DSC’s favorite supplies, foam balls and mardi gras beads, Amanda from Crafts by Amanda made a festive and adorable garland of snowman heads!  The secret ingredient in this project is DecoArt’s MagiKote, a product that gives styrofoam a sandable, paintable surface.  You can also adapt this idea for all kinds of other holidays and events: leprechauns for St. Patrick’s Day, bunny heads for Easter, baby faces for a shower, beach balls for a pool party…  What other occasions can you think of that would work with this craft?  [how to make a snowman garland]
