Popsicle Snowflakes

Popsicle Snowflakes by Cappuccino and WineThis was the craft completed by one of my friends at our craft day! She found this idea on Pinterest and decided to try it out so she could decorate the two large windows in her living room.

What you will need: popsicle sticks, buttons, hot glue & hot glue gun, spray paint in white, blue, or glitter, and some ribbon.

You start by deciding what design or pattern you want your snowflake to take (draw them out ahead of time or just go with the flow!). Once you have chosen you need to connect the middle sticks with a button (medium to large size) with hot glue so the sticks have a base to flow out from. Also, this way they do not overlap if you don’t want them to and it adds a fun color or decoration in the middle!

Next you use hot glue to attach the popsicle sticks together in the pattern you decide and as big as you want it to be. Just remember the bigger you go the more flimsy it may become.

Then you spray or paint the completed snowflake with the color you chose. My friend planned to spray them with white and then top it with blue glitter, but the glitter spray can broke. 😦

Last you use fun christmas ribbon to hang your new creation!!
