Since we haven’t been getting any snowflakes around here this winter, we decided to create some of our own! These easy to make decorations with a stained glass style will dress up your windows and make it feel like a winter wonderland, even if it’s not. These flakes are lots of fun to make and great for fine motor practice, too. We made ours entirely in shades of blue and white, but you can get creative with the colors or use whatever you have on hand to make this a very thrifty project.
- Construction Paper
- Tissue paper
- Glue Stick
- Cut a snowflake from construction paper. We followed the directions linked at the end of this post to make a 6 sided snowflake.
- Use a glue stick to glue tissue paper over the openings in the snowflake. This will be the back side of the snowflake.
- Tape your completed snowflakes to a bright window to turn any view into a wintery wonderland!
We had so much fun with this easy and thrifty craft project! It will readily adapt to the classroom if you’re looking for a winter craft for a group. It would also make a great little pick-me-up to send to a grandparent or a sick relative to brighten their windows.
I love how just like a real snowflake, no two designs will be just alike, and you can make these as simple or as detailed as you like. Because of its adaptability, this craft can be done by a wide range of ages. Have fun crafting!!
