You can build snowballs with your own intuition, but following our steps above can help you make a perfect snowboy every time
How to get DIYs & recipes
Because there’re two seasons together, you’ll have the ornament DIYs and the snowflake DIYs.
Where to get the DIYs?
- Cedar trees with decorations.
- Floating balloons.
Note: The balloons will be mixed with ornament DIYs and the snowflakes DIYs. After December 15th, the balloon will mixed with the snowflakes DIYs and Ornament DIYs. So it’s better to collect the Snowflake DIYs recipes after the Ornament season is over. Focus on the Ornament DIYs first.
