I could hardly wait to show you this Popsicle stick craft! These
snowflakes are fun, easy, and so inexpensive to make. The smallest
snowflake is 12 inches across; the largest is 24 inches. I had some
rhinestones left over from my Christmas tree advent calendar,
so I glued some at the tips of each white snowflake. You could also
coat them in glitter or fake snow. And why stop with snowflakes? You
could make stars, wreaths, or Christmas trees decked with lightweight
ornaments. Hang them in your window, over a door instead of a wreath, or
from the ceiling.

Supplies and tools

  • craft sticks
  • protractor
  • hot glue gun and glue
  • fishing line
  • clear cellophane tape
  • 3/8- to 1/2-inch-wide holiday ribbon

All my snowflakes are based on three basic patterns, which I will call star, hexagon, and rotated hexagon.

The star

star - step 1

1. Start by gluing six craft sticks in an asterisk shape at 30 degree
angles. Use a protractor to make sure your angles are accurate.

2. Then add the points to the star.

3. Finally, depending on the pattern, add the final craft sticks to complete the snowflake.

1. Using a small paintbrush, paint two coats of paint on each side,
including the edges. I recommend spray paint instead because it’s easier
and faster, but severe weather prohibited spray paint in my case. Let
dry.

2. Glue rhinestones onto the tips of the snowflakes. Or glue on glitter or fake snow. Let dry/cool.

3. To hang them in the window, tie fishing line to each snowflake.
Tape the fishing line to the top of the window frame with clear
cellophane tape.

4. To hang them on the wall, tie a small ribbon bow to the snowflake,
then tie a longer piece of ribbon to the back of the bow. Attach the
long ribbon with double-stick foam tape at the very top of the wall.
