Snowflake Wreath

My sister-in-law, Shanna, gave me a gift card to Hobby Lobby for Christmas and I certainly put it to good use right away! I used my new gift card, which was burning a hole in my wallet, to buy the supplies I needed for this giant snowflake! I am very swift about taking down my Christmas decorations a day or two after Christmas so I couldn’t wait to put something else “wintery” on my door in place of my Deco Mesh Christmas Wreath

Now let me warn your, if your front door is white, this isn’t going to turn out so great. I learned this the hard way. When I saw this on The Ballard Bunch Blog her door was black so the white snowflake really popped and looked awesome! So I made my own, hung it on my white door, went out to the road, and then realized you can barely see the snowflake because it blends right in to the door! I’m really sad about this because I love it so much, but I guess I’m going to give it to my grandparents, whose door is orange….Oklahoma State Cowboys orange that is…we live here in Arkansas and so do they, but both my grandma (who would hate it if she knew I was calling her grandma on here because she is “mom”) and grandad both graduated from OSU.

Here’s What You’ll Need:
-1 package of large craft sticks (like 99 cents at HobLob)
-White paint (also like 99 cents)
-Hot glue gun
Directions:
-Paint the craft sticks white. (I actually painted mine after I glued it together, either way will work)
-Glue the craft sticks together to form a snowflake. You can use this pattern that I used which is pretty simple or create your own!
-Hang from your door or on a wall or wherever! I hung mine straight from the wreath hanger, but you could also tie a ribbon around the top of it and hang it that way!
