Did you know powder laundry detergent makes a great faux snow substitute? Well, it does. Last Christmas, the boys and I made snow filled ornaments using doll house birds and Epsom salt. This year, we made snowy scenes in open glass containers. We poured Epsom salt in one, pushed in a tree, set a bird on it.
After that one, we ran out of salt, so we improvised. Laundry detergent to the rescue to make a larger forest-ish scene.
(So sorry for the glare! Any photography tips for glass and glare?!) Power detergent looks like snow (minus the glittery effect), but smells lovely.
When we’re ready to change things up, we can dump the detergent back in the original container. No faux snow to store or save.
One thought on “Snowy Scene”
These are so cute. I like how the laundry detergent actually makes it look like real snow. So clever.
In response to your photography question. Try to block where the glare is coming with a sheet or something. It looks like the glare is coming from the windows behind it. You can also try changing your angle.
