Finally some cold! After a warm and humid autumn and the first days of December hiting temperatures of 20 to 25˚C, for the first time yesterday I felt the need to wear warmer clothes. As far as it concerns the weather in Greece (I suppose elsewhere too) things are not exactly normal. Our winters used to be mild, but now we tend to have no winter at all. Snow was never a regular visitor to Athens, but once in a few years it snowed and those times are some of my most pleasant memories. Sometimes I fear that my children will never know what the snow is.
I want some snow please!
I strongly doubt that my wish will be heard so I will have to be satisfied with some paper snowflakes I will make. At least I will have a lovely, cheap and relatively easy to make decoration for Christmas.
I have a few options after some searching on the web.
Wouldn't this beautiful paper snowflake look lovely hanging from the chandelier?
Cut out + keep has all the info you need to make it.
Martha Stewart also has a step by step tutorial on how to make paper snowflakes which would look lovely on your window.
Are you looking for some inexpensive table decor? Use the paper snowflakes you made as a table runner, the way shelterpop shows:
Another idea is to make with them a delicate, airy curtain like the one on Ohdeedoh
If you want to try another material, apart from paper, you could use craft sticks the way Craftynest shows:
or make snowflakes with the tones of buttons you have collected so far following the steps on Shanty2Chic:
Have you ever made any snowflakes using some of the above methods or another one? Feel free to share a link in the comments.
