Well, it is time to take down our fall leaves window display and put up something more winter themed. I have plans for several window displays for our classroom/dinning room this winter. Today we are starting with popsicle stick snowflakes. If there is anything I have learned during my time as an art teacher it’s that you can’t go wrong with glitter!
- Wood popsicle sticks
- Paint (we used blue and white)
- Glitter (again, we used blue and white)
- String or yarn
It’s an easy enough craft with really great results.
Start by gluing several popsicle sticks into a snowflake shape. We used 4 sticks and I made 4 snowflakes for each of us.
Paint one side of the snowflake:
While the paint is still wet sprinkle the snowflake with glitter:
Set aside to dry overnight:
Big B’s Snowflakes, which I think are MUCH better than mine. The mix of the two colors on the one snowflake had a really beautiful result:
On day 2 turn the snowflakes over, and paint and glitter the backside. Once again allow them to dry completely:
We glued a strand of white yarn to the back of the snowflake, but you could also poke a hole through the stick and tie the yarn or string off.
Hang and Enjoy!!
I was a big fan of our fall window display, but I am already loving our winter themed ones so much more. I can’t wait to share our other ideas!
