Hello!

IMG_2194Today, I’m sharing this easy-to-make, quick-to-whip-up snowflake garland! This craft is so easy to change to fit your needs, so its perfect for a mantelpiece, a door, a locker, or even for play with dolls and toys. This craft takes about thirty to forty-five minutes, so if you are anything like me, this will be really helpful for when winter break boredom kicks in :)

  1. Fold a piece of paper in half and cut the two halves apart.
  2. Put one half aside. With the other half, fold a triangle to meet the edge so that you have created a square!
  3. Cut the bottom part of the paper off.
  4. Fold the square in half again so you have an even smaller triangle.
  5. Cut out fancy decorations, like squares, half circles, triangles, etc. Make sure not to cut where the snowflake connects.
  6. Unfold your paper. There’s your pretty snowflake!
  7. Repeat steps 2-6 until you have as many snowflakes as you want. {I made 6 in total}IMG_2190
  8. Cut the desired length of thread or string for your garland.
  9. Tie the snowflakes on by making knots in the holes.
  10. You’re all done! Make as many as you want for your door, window, or wall.

Have a happy Saturday!
