Christmas Calendar Countdown: Day 18- Snowflakes

For day 18 of our christmas calendar countdown we made a snowflakes out of popsicle stick craft!

As you can see the “craft sticks” here are actually Starbucks’ stir sticks. I grab a few when we had our bonding time.
I just love how long and delicate these stir sticks are; perfect for snowflakes! You could certainly use regular craft sticks to make these ornaments though.

These snowflakes are fun, easy, and so inexpensive to make. You could also coat them in glitter or whatever art supplies you have on hand. Buttons will be a neat addition too. You could hang them in your window, over a door instead of a wreath. And why stop with ornaments you can add it to your presents as embelishment.
