Not only are they completely lovely, but they're also incredibly simple to make. The best part is, you can make them in just about any size, so you could make little ones to hang on your Christmas tree, or big ones to hang from the ceiling! They're a lovely, wintery decoration that really pretties up any space you put them in. In fact, I made some to hang in the office at work out of some recycled paper, and they look absolutely lovely.
So! Let's jump into making them!
To make one snowflake you'll need:
- 6 squares of paper in the color and size of your choosing. I made mine 8 1/2"x8 1/2" when I made the large snowflake and 4 1/4"x 4 1/4" when I made the smaller ones.
- Glue dots. Or a glue gun. Or tape and a stapler. I prefer glue dots, but you can choose what works best for you, or what you have most readily available.
- A stapler
- A hole punch
- Pretty string for hanging your snowflakes
When you're done, you should have something that looks like the above photo!
Aren't these pretty just on their own? Love!
Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the other 3 shapes.
I know they seem like they take quite a few steps, but each one of these only takes about 5 minutes to put together. Once you get the first one down, you'll be churning them out faster than you know it!
I hope you enjoyed following along with this tutorial and I hope you get a chance to hang some of these pretties in your home this winter!
Til next time!
