Supplies

Free Snowflake Patterns

You can use these or make your own as they are super easy. These patterns make smaller snowflakes due too the border allowance on printers. If you make your own you can use the full sheet for larger snowflakes.

Instructions

For this project you will make two things. A white paper chain… yep. Just like in grade school! And paper snowflakes… also from grade school.

To make the chain cut white paper into strips. I cut a normal piece into 7 strips. I didnt even measure, just roughly guessed.  Make a Winter Wonderland for Pennies using only white paper, scissors and a stapler! Twinkle lights optional.  Free Snowflake Patterns included!
Start stapling your chain, making loops.  You can make it as long as you want! Do it while watching TV and it goes faster.  You could also tape these together but stapling goes much faster.

Next is the snowflakes!  You will notice that I did not use the printed patterns you can download. I just grabbed paper, folded and cut in a variety of ways.

Time to hang! We used a manual stapler to attach the lights to the ceiling. BE CAREFUL not to staple into the wire!
