DIY North Pole
Last year I was scrolling through Pinterest for DIY decoration Ideas when I stumbled upon a few (all of which I will be posting here) that I REALLY wanted to do. Time got away from me and I never got that chance…until this year…
The first one was so cool I thought. So here it is A DIY North Pole. Here are the items that you will need to start with.
- Solar path light (I found mine at Walmart for 1.98)
- Foam circle (Walmart for 3.49)
- Fake snow (Walmart 4.50)
- Popsicle sticks (I did not use this one for mine)
- Chain necklace (I did not use this one for mine)
- Paper shapes (had the perfect shape in my craft box)
- Paint (had on hand)
- Glue (on hand)
Start by covering a round foam base with white paint cause I noticed the snow falls off and might have gaps.
Then glue on the fake snow. I used loose snow, but you could also use the sheets of felt-like “snow” for Christmas villages or use a cheap tree skirt. Or I came up with the idea I could have used snow in the can. It probably would have looked more realistic this way and way less messy..If I can find the snow (our Walmart was out) I probably will do another one with this for comparison.
While you’re waiting for the glue on your snow to dry, take two sign-shaped pieces of paper and write “North Pole” on each one. If you go with the original idea you would hot glue it on a chain then on the popcycle sticks but I just glued it directly on to the solar lights and it worked out just fine.
Take the bottom end of the path light and press it into the snow-covered foam base. You can add a little bit of glue to make sure it stays firmly in place that is what I did.
I took foam Christmas stickers and put them together with a toothpick in between and pushed them into the foam circle. I also took one of my Christmas town figurines and put them onto the “Snow” and this was my end result
If you want to see the original post I got the idea from click HERE. Otherwise. Enjoy and hope it works out for you. Keep watch as I might add at the bottom here if I am able to do another one with Canned snow instead.
