Mr.Snowball was used a promotion device for a formal.
After a couple failed plans he finally came to life by, taking white fabric and getting the round shape off a yoga ball, and glue gunning it fabric into shape. Then glueing it down to cardboard and stuffed it with newspaper. I did this twice.
Then spray painted it white, and gold glitter. To make the staff it was just a painted black stick and gold stryphone ball. Then I made straps out of handles from a recyclable fabric grocery bag.
The cost of making this Mr. Snowball Costume was about $40. Took about 6 hours to make.
