Winter Snowball Centerpiece

 If you're looking for a beautiful transition from Christmas into winter, it doesn't get much easier than this one!

"Snowballs" are what I think of when I think of winter and they make beautiful decorations in a bowl. 

If only you could preserve a few snowballs for your decor... 

Or can you? See what I'm repurposing today to create the look of snowballs in my centerpiece...

Dryer balls!

Yep! Felt dryer balls make the perfect snowballs and all you need to do is to toss them into a bowl. After all, they sure can take the heat! 😂

And if you love this bowl, it was a makeover of mine too! 

Anyway, toss the felted dryer balls into a beautiful wooden bowl and add some pinecones.

Your pinecones could be a little embellished with paint or gold Rub and Buff too, but not necessary to get a beautiful look!

Add a lot or a little, you don't need much!

I like these white felted dryer balls the best and I even use them for my laundry. 

I even made a repurposed pumpkin with dryer balls for the Fall too!

You can even add lights! These are my favorite votive lights and they have a remote control.

The lights look great in the bowl. And who can't toss a bunch of cool things into a bowl for a great look?
