Snowflake craft Christmas decorations

Homemade glass Christmas bauble with a snowflake patternWhile there’s no sign of snow in the Australian summer, that’s no reason not to have snowflakes!

I made my first snowflake yesterday morning, and since then there has been an avalanche of them in my house.

They are actually very easy to make and they add a great wow factor to Christmas. Your children can have fun making them too.

We’ve made snowflake-themed Christmas tree decorations, bunting, Christmas cards and we’ve even eaten a snowflake-themed lunch.

Yesterday morning our Christmas tree consisted of gingerbread cookies, popcorn garlands and our advent calendar envelopes.

Now it looks like this:

Snowflake Christmas Tree Decorations

I used pegs to hang them up, although ribbon or twine would also work. My snowflakes may have a bit of colour, but what’s the point of a white Christmas in Australia anyway?

Snowflake Christmas bunting

I threaded smaller snowflakes with cotton (although twine/ribbon would also work) to form bunting.

Snowflake Christmas cards

My two-year-old helped me make Christmas cards by sticking the snowflakes onto plain card.

Snowflake glass baubles

I pasted/varnished my snowflake cut-outs onto store-brought glass baubles for presents for family members.

Snowflakes for lunch!

We’ve even been eating snowflakes. Check out this wrap that had been folded into sixths, then cut out!

Soon we’ll be adding snowflake wrapping paper to the collection.

 

If you are looking for a craft activity that the children can partake in, why not make a snowflake? All you need is paper and scissors.

  1. Fold the piece of paper into a quarter
  2. Fold the quarter into thirds from the point
  3. Cut out shapes and have fun!
