So as you know I lost a bunch of christmas decorations this year, my attic imploded. Not sure.
But because of this I am trying to make lots of fun, cute, cheap decorations.
It's been fun, fortunately I'm not very sentimental.
So here is my new door snowflake!
I got the general idea from diary of dave's wife.
who got it from someone on pinterest, it's really a long muddy trail but at least everyone is giving credit. I like that about blog land.
I started out with popsicle sticks.
I just played around with it till it looked like a snowflake. I think if I would have paid attention to the angles, it would have turned out a little better.
Learn from my mistakes people!
Then I spraypainted it silver.
On this picture I really overexposed it so you could see all the layers.
1. I gluegunned a dollar store plastic snowflake on top of the popsicle snowflake
2. I glued a glittered styrofoam blue snowflake on top of that.
3. I glued acrylic blue beads on all the ends.
4. I glued rhinestones on all the joints.
The whole thing took less then 30 minutes and cost me zip, because I had all the odds and ends laying around.
I think she is so pretty. She seems to be holding together well and I may love her! But can you see where I should have paid attention alittle to the angles?
