Popsicle stick snowflakes



This is one of my favorite projects to make because its so simple and doesn't take very long to make. Here I will give you a step by step on how to make these pretty snowflakes with popsicle sticks and a hot glue gun!

For one snow flake you will need 9 popsicle sticks.


Next take 3 of those popsicle sticks and glue them together with the hot glue gun as shown in the picture below


With each of the remaining popsicle sticks cut the ends off on an angle.... discard the middle piece. I used a regular scissor to cut them but you may also use a blade.


Attach both end pieces to the end of one of the sticks you glued together in step one. Repeat until each end has a V shape. 



Next I painted my snowflake with elmers glue and then used a mixture of white sand and silver glitter and sprinkled it on and let it dry. Snowflake complete! 


You can even attach fishing. line and hang them in your windows or on your christmas trees. Super simple and pretty!
