Huge Popsicle Stick Snowflakes


I don't know if you're like me, but come Christmas time I tend to over decorate.  Is that a bad thing?  Nah!  I like my house to look like the spirit of Christmas threw up in it.  So this past weekend I was looking around the house and saw a blank spot on the living room wall on either side of a large mirror.  I decided right then and there that my wall looked nekkid.  I remembered seeing these snowflakes on Pinterest and since I had a ton of popsicle sticks left over from this project, I decided to go ahead and make them.

These would be perfect hanging in a window.


It's all really simple.  All you need to do is use a glue gun to attach the popsicle or tongue depressor sticks together in a snowflake pattern.  Once that's all dry, you can paint it.

Here they are all ready for paint.

I went with white spray paint and I glued epsom salt all over them to give them a snowy look.



You can't tell from the pictures but they look like crystals.


I'll keep decorating until I run out of steam, usually sometime around Christmas Eve eve.

Here they are all finished again.  


Here are some sites that feature more of this.


Now go stalk check them out.
