  • Karon Grieve's Last Minute Christmas

    paper snowballs are incredibly easy to make and look stunning made in assorted sizes and hung from the ceiling on fine silver thread.

    To make 1 snowball you will need;

    2 sheets of plain white tissue paper - available in packs in supermarkets now for only £1.50 for 10 sheets or just use some of the stuff that almost every high street shop seems to stuff into your packages these days, just flatten it out first.

    You want 8 square pieces, so simply fold both sheets in half and then half again. This will give you 8 pieces. Cut into square shape by crossing one corner over like a triangle and snipping a straight line at the edge. Make sure you have cut through all sheets and don't have any hidden folds anywhere.
    Concertina pleat it as if you were making a fan with each fold about half an inch wide and tie the thread securely in the centre.
    Cut the ends into points and then tease out each layer going back and forth and fluff out into a fabulous snowball.
