Popsicle Stick Snowflakes

And we're back with another simply beautiful Christmas craft for kids! Thank you Pinterest! What can be easier than popsicle sticks, glitter, and cotton balls? You're right! Nothing! Not much is cuter than these sweet little snowflakes either. So, let's get started!

 For these Popsicle Stick Snowflakes you will need:

Standard sized popsicle sticks. Or, I guess, you could use the big huge popsicle sticks too, for some heftier flakes. Ha! :)
white school glue
cotton balls

First, glue two popsicle sticks together to form an X. Then glue a third stick on top running vertically through the middle of the X. Let dry.

When the snowflake is dry, run glue on the top of the popsicle sticks and sprinkle generously with glitter. Place a dot of glue on each tip and in the middle of the snowflake and glue down a cotton ball. I pulled the cotton balls apart so they looked a little more fluffy and not so ball-y.

Allow to dry, then add a piece of yarn to the back and hang up to create your very own glittery snowstorm!

Sophia was so excited when she came downstairs and saw all of the flakes hanging in the hallway.

"It's like it's snowing, in our HOUSE, mom!"

Twirl away, baby girl. Enjoy your indoor snowstorm!
