I really need some help from fellow crafty people. I have to design the set for my sister's school's Christmas concert and i need to have fake snow. Does anyone have any ideas for how I could make fake snow?

Mashed potato flakes?
Though you have to be careful with that if it lands in someone's mouth. Close up, it just looks like mashed potato flakes.
I think I heard somewhere you could use the stuffing inside diapers and add water so it puffs up.
They have something called insta-snow which is relatively the same idea.
I guess it depends what kind of budget you're on.

Do you need the snow to fall or snow drifts?

hi!  just snooping and all these great  ideas!  Have you tried Ivory snow        laundry detergent, you add a little water and beat with electric beaters. (the ivory snow has to be flakes though)

for snow drifts you could use batting (for stuffed animals) and sprinkle with silver glitter to catch the light. Another idea would be to use Styrofoam packing pellets.

The fake snow i have seen is just shredded plastic.  How about shedded (criss-cross) paper.  If you need lots it might be worth it then you can recycle it after.  The stuff in diapers turns into a gel when you wet it (FYI).  I would use an irridescent glitter and batting for the drifts.  Sounds messy though what ever you decide to use.

take styrafoam and go crazy. You can always just buy fake snow, but that's not very craftsterlike.

Steve Spangler's insta-snow is the way to go! Smiley

Whilst it is buying a product rather than DIY, the stuff is reusable and makes for great effect.
