Snowflakes will be dancing around your house with this quick and easy project.
Gorgeous Little Snowflakes
I had made these snow flakes last year and put them around my house. Everyone asked how I made them..pure and simple. Save your paper towel and toilet paper rolls!
1. Using a large paper towel roll or toilet paper roll I took my ruler and marked 1/2" spaces all the way down the roll. I flattened the paper towel roll to make it easier to cut.
2. When complete I took my scissors and sliced off each piece.
After the sections were cut I warmed up my glue gun.
3. When glue gun is hot, place a small dot on the edge of the first piece. This will be at the bottom.
One this first piece had been glued, go around and do 4 or 5 more to make it look like a snowflake. Attach each piece to the bottom area. This will make the snowflake spread out.
After this basic snowflake was done I took a cutting of the roll and bent it in half. I used the glue gun and put a small dot of glue on both sides and adhered it to one of the inside pieces of the snowflake.
I kept using the bent 1/2 pieces and added them to my snowflake. I just took some creative liberty and ran with it.
Once the glue step is done I put some newspaper down and put my snowflake on it. I chose to use silver spray paint but you can choose any color you wish. I gave it a good spray and let it dry. I sprayed on both sides.
Once my snowflake was dry I took out the GLITTER! I used some modge podge or you can use glue and I swiped my paint brush over the edges of my snowflake. I quickly shook the GLITTER over the snowflake to give it a glistening effect.
Once all of the GLITTER is on then I let dry. You can add anything you wish at this point. Some people like jewel embellishments etc.
We had fun making these snowflakes. You'll find that you can't just make one.
