Paper Snowflake Window Curtain

Paper snowflakes can look beautiful in your windows as holiday curtains. Follow this tutorial to create a winter wonderland to hang in your window  — a curtain of ice — without the chill.  

 

Snowflakes from Cardboard Tubes

From the blogger: The process is pretty easy. Each of the tubes are flattened, cut into 1 inch segments of different lengths, and then spray-painted white (or whatever color you prefer). The different size loops are hot glued together to make the snowflake shape.

 

Non- Paper Snowflakes

 

Clothespin Snowflakes by Stephanie Lynn

These snowflakes bring an old-fashioned feel to holiday decorating. They can be made as a plain and simple ornament, or you can add glitter, feathers, or other bits and pieces to jazz them up. Use them as gift toppers, tree ornaments, or even hang them on the wall.

 

Lace Snowflakes from the Aunt Peaches blog

Lace is lovely to look at, but we don’t often get out grandma’s lace tablecloth for everyday use, so perhaps it’s time to use it as the basis for a family heirloom. This blog teaches you how to make beautiful snowflakes from lace (get yours from a thrift shop if you can’t bear to cut up grandma’s tablecloth!).

 

Frosted Pipe Cleaner Snowflake Ornaments

Frosted snowflakes make beautiful ornaments for your holiday decor. All you need to make these is white pipe cleaners, spray adhesive, epsom salts, fishing line, and acrylic sealer. These snowflakes sparkle — just like the real ones!

 

We hope you have fun creating snowflakes this month! Thanks for reading along this year with The Park at Winters Run Blog! Happy holidays and see you next year.
