I was inspired to make these simple popsicle stick snowflakes when I saw Aleacia’s, over at Dilly-Dali Art‘s last week. Aleacia has been a real source of inspiration for me lately. Her Christmas Tree Star gave me the idea for our tin-foil trees, and I have to admit I have been a totally shameless copy-cat with her snowflakes.
No need for a real tutorial here. The pictures pretty much say it all. I’ll just give you some brief details.
While the sticks were drying, we worked on our other craft du jour: our plastic icicles. You can see them here.
We used A toothbrush dipped in white paint, and scrubbed across a piece of screen to “speckle” the snowflakes. This didn’t work quite as well as I’d hoped so we ended up using a plastic fork to run the toothbrush across. Much better.
Attach your string or thread for hanging, and you’re done! Super easy, and super cute!s
