this is the last craft we did over the school christmas break.
it's kind of christmassy but can just be fun for winter too.
we used photographs, school glue, paint brushes, martha stewart fine glitter, mini pom poms and pre cut wood snowflakes from hobby lobby...they were like $1.50? or something like that.
they came already painted white.
take a photo you like and draw a circle over it with whatever circle shape that fits your sowflake...we used a drinking glass from our kitchen.
cut out your picture.
then cover your entire snowflake (only one side) in glue.
we poured glue into a small bowl and painted it on the snowflake.
after the picture is on you cover everything with glitter.
(the fun part. :)
you wouldn't have to use the martha stewart glitter but it IS amazing.
everything looks so good with it.
it's pricey and regular glitter would still work....but the MS stuff is my FAVE.
when the glitter & glue was dry we hot glued the mini pom poms around the photo.
they were very fun to make.
glitter is messy i know but all you need is a hose attachment to your vaccum to clean it up.
and honestly...i like having glitter fall off me everywhere i go around my house. :)
we made some for our friends...
annie made this one for talby.
i think you could just hang these up around your house all winter...it is not strictly christmas that gets the glitter.
creating with glitter makes me happy.
happy friday to you.
