{diy oversized snowflakes}

In an effort to keep my children entertained while being stuck inside,
I decided to do a winter/christmas craft.
I thought snowflakes would be fun.
And I knew we had loads of popsicle sticks.
My original idea of little star like snowflakes transformed once I took a peak at Pinterest.
Typical.
So, let me break down for you what we ended up doing instead.

Supplies
popsicle sticks
hot glue gun + glue
spray adhesive
glitter
white paint + brush
newspaper

First, you will need to have an idea of what you'd like your snowflake to look like.
Once you have figured that out...
start glueing.
Just put one drop of glue on the edge of the stick... don't overdue it or you may glue the whole snowflake to your countertop. Not like I'd know or anything. :)
 Once all of the glue is dry, you can decorate it.
Brody decided to paint one white.
And I wanted to make a glittery one.
 Make sure you put down lots of newspaper.
Spray a small section of the snowflake with your spray adhesive.
Then sprinkle glitter on.
 Try to get most of the glitter on the snowflake...
since there is spray adhesive on the newspaper too you can't salvage much of the excess.
After all of the glitter was applied, I did one final spray over the whole thing with the spray adhesive to hold that glitter in place.
And voila...
 This was a super easy, fast, cheap and simple craft.
Throw on some fish line, hang up, and you not only have some super cute homemade decor,
but your kids were occupied, and very proud of their final product!
 Give it a try today!

  3. I love these. Don't have a glue gun, though, and not sure normal clue will hold. :-(
