Additional advice

It is ideal for putting snow on a tree that is not too big or a few fir branches for your Christmas table decoration.

You can also snow the ends of the branches of a large fir tree for a natural and original decoration.

This snow is much more natural than the snow you buy in a store.

And it’s always interesting with animals that bite everything or children and babies.

In addition, it is much more economical.

Do you also have a Christmas crib at home?

So this is perfect if you want to make a small carpet of snow for your nursery.

The baking soda stays in place, thanks to the lacquer. It also works very well to make a little layer of snow on your decorations or your santons.

Bonus tips

– This method also works by replacing the lacquer with water. For example, wet your window panes or nursery with a spray filled with water and sprinkle baking soda on it. The powder then binds to the area. Magic, isn’t it?

– Once you have finished decorating the tree, do not forget to remove the sheet. You can shake it outside or collect the baking soda that has fallen on it to make Santa Claus footprints!

– You can also take the sheet and put it directly in the washing machine with the rest of the laundry. Your laundry will only be cleaner!

Why does it work?

By diffusing the lacquer on the branches, we add a homogeneous sticky and transparent surface on the branches of the fir tree.

Thanks to this ingenious little process, the bicarbonate easily adheres to different surfaces without the powder dissipating.

It makes a light veil of snow on the branches of the fir tree.
