Next week begins winter break for the kids. These popsicle stick snowflakes are cheap and easy to make and the kids love coming up with different designs. You can leave them plain for a woodsy look or you can spray paint them like I did. I used some Krylon Glitterblast spray paint so they are nice and shimmery when the sun streams in our windows. And they are large – like 18” – 20” each!
Hi, I’m Beckie Farrant from Infarrantly Creative, showing you how to make this fun and easy winter craft.
1. You can start by having your child design their snowflake pattern with the popsicle sticks. It makes it a lot easier to lay it all out first before you begin gluing it together.
2. Once the pattern is laid out have an adult put the hot glue on the ends of the popsicle sticks. This allows the kids to position it where they want it to go without the chance of getting burned.
3. Let it dry.
4. Once dry decide how you want to embellish it. They can use glitter, sequins, markers, crayons. Or an adult can take them outside (if you live in weather that permits that right now) to spray paint them. I don’t so I set it up in our basement with the air vents going down there. I used a coordinating color spray paint and then once dry I used the Glitter Blast spray on top of that.
5. Cut picture hanging strips into small squares and hang them on your wall.
Look at how it sparkles when the light touches it…
My kids are always so proud when their art pieces make it on our walls as decor.
