Let it snow!
In honor of the snow that came down yesterday, we made a bunch of snowflakes to decorate the inside of our house. We hung them above the kitchen table which, in retrospect, was a bad idea because now Will climbs onto the table to make them swing. They are pretty and festive though!
The blue snowflakes were all templates that came from Family Fun. We made a snowman, hearts, and flowers snowflakes.
The white lacy looking snowflakes were ones I cut out of coffee filters. Delicate, lacy, and with some glitter, perfectly gorgeous and twinkly!
The pompom/3d snowflakes are made from white pipe cleaners threaded with tri-cornered clear beads. Instructions can be found at Family Fun also.
I am also hoping to make these glittery window clings. That is an after-the-kids-are-in-bed sort of craft though :)
PS - just realized the pompom/pipe cleaner snowflake's picture is sideways! Sorry about that.
