With Christmas right around the corner I have started a few projects to decorate my home and to use as gifts. As much as I love all the magic surrounding Christmas, I try not bring it out until December. Some of my crazy neighbors have had their homes decorated since November 1st! I suppose that’s better than the ones who leave it all up well into March. All the same, I’m just glad to see people ready to celebrate the season!
So to ease into the Christmas spirit I did go ahead and make a little window display of paper snowflakes in my dining room. Actually it’s more of a “welcome winter” display as I live in a part of the world that is winter more days than not. *cries a little inside*
This project was simple. It just required a little patience and some fine motor skills as it became a bit meticulous. Materials I used were a craft snowflake punch, white card-stock paper, white thread or string, and some glue.
I cut the thread in different lengths and glued the snowflakes to each once about 4 inches apart. The trickiest part was not getting them tangled. Once I had the coverage I was looking for I taped them all to the top of the window sill. Again, be careful not to secure them too close or they will tangle easily. They look prettiest at night when the moon shines in. Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling 🙂
