If you have some sticks, wood glue, glitter (optional), and baker's twine (optional), you too can make them. Here's how...
1) Cut or break 3 sticks at about 4" in length.
2) Apply wood glue to the center of one stick and lay the second stick on top, making an X. Let it dry before moving on.
3) Once the X is dry and sturdy, apply wood glue to the top and lay the third stick on the glue, making a snowflake shape. You may need to use a couple of books or something to support the third stick as it drys, or lay the X on the third stick (third stick on bottom).
4) Once it is all dry you can embellish it with glitter, bakers twine (we used twine to give more stability to some of them), or you can add more dimension to your snow flake by bending sticks into a V and gluing them to the ends of the snowflake.
I think it's got an Anthropologie vibe going on =)
Next week, I hope to be able to show you my woodland garland that I've been working on for awhile. Here's a little peek...
I keep getting distracted by making other crafty stuff with my little birdies like this...
I think she's going to be a year around decoration in my house. I want to add some bells to the bottom of the branch and hang her on my front door. We'll see.
Have a joyful weekend!
