How to Integrate Snow Falling effect on a HomePage Slider in Divi

Firstly create a Fullwidth section and add a fullwidth slider, with images, titles, sub-titles and the buttons as shown below:

Note: With a small trick, converted the slider into a full-page slider with a cloud-like divider at the bottom.

Step 2: Add a Fullwidth Code to introduce the Snow falling effect.

Divi Slider Layout

The Fullwidth code contains the code below:

<div class="snow"> </div>

Add the below CSS into the theme-options custom CSS file:

.snow{

  1. The Title and the buttons (left and right arrows, shop now) were behind the snow falling effect, that makes the button not clickable 🙁
  2. When scrolled, the snow effect was on top of everything, even the header!

Solution: Perfect Snow Falling effect on Divi Slider

Instead of adding one more layer ie., Fullwidth Code module, Enable the Background Overlay for the slider and make the background overlay as the snow falling effect by adding the corresponding CSS code for the overlay section.

Note: The background overlay has to be enabled for all the sliders in the section.
