Kids love making these snowflake garlands to wrap around trees or hang from windows and ceilings. We’ve made hundreds of them at Art Truck events and they are always a hit. You decide the length and number of flakes. Best part? No mess, easy-to find supplies make it a cinch. It’s super easy – here’s how:
Project Duration: 20 minutes to two hours
- White cardstock (pastel blue or grey are nice, too)
- Curly ribbon – we like silver, white and blue.
- Glue sticks – try Elmer’s Washable brand.
- Gems or sequins from Michael’s, Hobby Lobby or S&S.
- Snowflake punch -we love Martha Stewart for great design and quality.
- Punch out 10 snowflakes using puncher;
- Cut ribbon length at least 2 feet (a little longer is better);
- Take one flake, place glue in center;
- Leaving 6 inches at top of ribbon strand, place ribbon in center of flake;
- Now, turn it over, add a bit of glue to center and “sandwich” another flake on top;
- Repeat until you have at least 5 snowflakes on your chain;
- Once flakes are on ribbon, adhere gems or sequins to center of flakes with glue.
Hang on or around a favorite tree or anywhere you’d like to add some bling and sparkle.
