Hi Everyone!  This is Melanie from Artzy Creations and I’m so excited to be part of Toni’s, Design Dazzle Christmas Wonderful 2015. The Holidays are the perfect time to get everyone involved in making festive decorations for the house.  At our house during the holidays, we always have some sort of craft going on whether it be making popcorn garland, decorations for the window, or making more ornaments for the tree, there is always something.  And since my youngest daughter is still pretty young, I try to make the crafts doable for all ages.  These Paper Straw Snowflakes are a great craft for all ages.  What’s best about this craft too, is that is really inexpensive and only takes two straws per snowflake to make them.  Let’s get started and see just how easy these adorable snowflakes are to create.

Supplies Needed:

  • Variety of Paper Straws
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue or Low Temp Glue Gun For Kids
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Twine or Ribbon to Hang the Snowflake

Step 1:  Taking two straws, cut them both in half.  You will have four straw pieces.

Step 2:  Taking your scissors, cut the ends of the straw just a little bit.  Work your way around the tip of the straw, cutting a little section at a time.

Step 3: Make an X  with two straws and hot glue them in place.  Slightly squeeze the middle of the straw.  This will flatten the center of the straws a little bit so they will stack and glued easier.

Step 4:  Hot glue another straw vertically down the center of the X that you just made.
