Supplies for How to Make a Paper Snowflake
This list is pretty short and you probably have most of it on hand already.
They are like free ornaments!
But incase you need to stock up on any supplies, here you go:
- Toilet paper roll
- Mod Podge (or white glue)
- White paint
- Hole punch
- White/clear glitter
- Fishing line
- Hot glue
Paper Snowflake Ornament Directions
Step 1: Flatten
Use both hands to flatten the toilet paper roll. Give it a good crease.
Step 2: Cut
Cut the pieces for the paper snowflake. Cut strips that are approximately 1/2″ in width.
Step 3: Cut Again
Using scissors, cut the end of the strips open. You can and should cut right on the crease you created.
Step 4: Glue
Using hot glue, glue the pieces together. You want the cut side out.
Step 4: Start Curling
Once the pieces are all glued together, you should have a piece that kind of looks like a flower.
Curl the ends into one another and secure them with a dab of hot glue and it should look something like this. I know what you are thinking.
What about those messy looking pieces sticking up?
Step 5: Trim
Give the ornament haircut. Trim off the pieces that are sticking out and looking messy!
Step 6: Paint
Step 7: Glue
Use either a clear drying glue or a Mod Podge and brush it all over the ornament.
Step 8: Glitter It Up! Add a little pizzaz to the paper snowflake.
While the glue or Mod Podge is still wet, sprinkle with a clear or white glitter.
Step 9: A Little Extra Sparkle To The Paper Snowflake
Glue two clear gems into the middle of the snowflake. It gives it a little extra sparkle.
Step 10: Punch A Hole
Punch a hole into one of the curves. I used a hole punch, but anything pointy will do.
Step 11: Hang the Paper Snowflake
Cut a length of fishing line, loop it and tie it off.
Add a dab of glue to keep it in place.
Now you know how to make a paper snowflake ornament and you can go hang it up!
