So I thought, I am wishing for a White Christmas, but it may not come, so how about we make some snowflakes and make it a white Christmas in my apartment at least? All you need for this DIY is some white pipe cleaners (you can get them at every craft store around!), ornament hooks (we got ours at the dollar store) scissors and string or twine.
LIsten, all snow flakes look different, so get crazy here. Cut the pipe cleaners into different sizes and just twist them around each other. In most cases I started with an X shape and then got creative.
Keep on going....
... and you get a snowflake! How easy was that! This would be a perfect craft for kiddies!
I made all different sizes and all different shapes and just kept going until I ran out of pipe cleaners.
Now get out your ornament hooks, scissors and twine (or ribbon or whatever you choose). Hang the twine from the two points you want it to "snow" from.
Wrap the ornament hook around the snowflake.
And hang the snowflakes from the twine. IT'S SNOWING!
Because of the way the light is hitting them, you get these amazing shadows on the other walls and it is just stunning. Ok. I'm done decorating now. We have made sent out our cards and made a Christmas village, made snow globes, chalk board salt clay ornament gift tags and star Christmas lighting. Baked Gingerbread Cupcakes and Santa and his Elves Coconut Cupcakes. Wow, we've been busy! What's left? Ah, yes. Cookies. Come back everyday the rest of this week to get your holiday cookie recipes!
