The boys and I made a great project over the weekend – giant hanging popsicle stick snowflakes! They are perfect for taking up some space on the wall next to our faux mantel! As part of a sponsored campaign, we got the idea from the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club, which is a free club full of crafts, recipes, décor, tips, contests, insider information, frugal fun ideas, and more! This month, they have the large popsicle stick snowflakes featured and I loved them! The project itself takes a bit of time, but is really quite easy. As the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club directions indicate, all you really need is paint (colors of your choice), popsicle craft sticks, and glue. Because I already had a hot glue gun on hand, we used that to help make it a little sturdier. But, you can certainly use super glue or craft glue from Dollar Tree. You can find full instructions on the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club site. But, really the process is quite easy – just start with a basic shape (star, hexagon, octagon, etc) and build out from there in any sort of snowflake “shapes”. Then, paint and embellish as you like! Just like real snowflakes, each giant snowflake creation can be completely unique! Since the boys are SO into the movie FROZEN right now and we might want to keep the snowflakes up through January, we just went ahead and did white for ours. But, we did decide to add a little glitter! To help cut down on the glitter mess inside the house, we made sure to add the glitter when the paint was wet and then let it all dry. Then we shook off the excess glitter. Additionally you could add a coat of decoupage glue over the top of it to help seal it.
*UPDATE: These were PERFECT decor for our Disney FROZEN birthday party! So, if you need some inexpensive DIY decorations for a FROZEN party, these are a great way to go! Aren’t they fun?! Now, how would you like some money to the Dollar Tree to do some shopping for your own crafty supplies?
