Doily Snowflake Garland
Create a sweet and romantic winter wonderland décor by crafting a lacey snowflake garland out of paper doilies in various sizes. Begin by folding a paper doily in half over and over until it resembles 1/8 of a pie. Snip designs into your snowflake and unfold the paper. Weave across each dainty snowflake to assemble your adorable garland. Check out the Doily Snowflake Garland here for detailed instructions.
This enchanting snowflake wreath takes under 15 minutes and about $8 (minus the spray paint and ribbon) to complete! To make, apply a light coat of white, silver, or gold spray paint in a wreath form. Glue various sizes of clear, opaque, and glittery snowflakes onto the front and back of the wreath. Finally, hook one pretty hanging beaded ornament in the middle. Hang your wreath by tying in a knot or bow, or use a wreath door hanger instead.
Blogger Jamie Christina’s rustic and fragile snowflake decorations with thread-wrapped joints are simply endearing! Easily make them at home by cutting three sticks from twigs at about 4 inches in length. Create a snowflake by gluing the sticks together. Add more dimension by gluing V-shape twigs to the tips of the snowflake. Use bakers twine to give more stability, and embellish the final piece with glitter.
With just a few simple things, you can craft your own stunning crystalline snowflakes and enjoy their sparkle all year long! Make the snowflake by twisting three pipe cleaners of equal length together at their centers. Add one little piece to the end of each side to form a prong. Tie the twine around the end of one spoke and tie the other end of the twine to a holder such as a pencil or stick. Submerge the snowflake in a jar of borax solution (use 3 tablespoons of borax to every cup of boiling water) overnight. Color it blue, if you like, by tinting the mixture with food color. Take it out in the morning and hang to dry.
Light up your space with a dainty snowflake lantern. This creation by Nikki embraces the winter season while giving your home a lovely sparkle. First, look for a snowflake stencil that you can tape around a jar. Make sure that the stencil is attached fully to the glass before taking the jar outside to spray with silver or white paint. Place Christmas lights or a battery-operated candle inside the lantern. Read Nikki’s post for more details.
