This powders' Bitchin'
I used to try to find the "perfect" faux snow for Christmas decor. Well, I never did find it--I figured out how to make my own. While cutting a large styrofoam block for a cake base, I noticed how the flakes produced while cutting glistened in the light--just like fresh powder. So, I broke out the cheese grater and went to town--and a couple of bloody knuckles later I had a heaping mound of the best lookin' faux snow I'd ever seen. I used it last year in a grove of pine trees set up in the interior of a client's home. You could not tell that it was not real snow!!! It even has the same heft as wet snow.
