In Vancouver we rarely get snow, only on the mountains which is lovely but for me a girl who grew up with snowy Christmas’, well I miss snow. So in lieu of snow outside I made paper snowflakes to hang in my windows and they are just as magical and fun, not to mention cheap and easy to make. If you are looking for a simple instructions to make your own, Martha Stewart has some here.
Last year I just stuck my snowflakes directly onto the windows, but this year for a more whimsical feel I hung them with clear string and you know what, they move with the air in our apartment.
Now I can sit looking out my windows, while I dream of real snow, while the paper snowflakes slowly dance in circles in front of me and maybe if I wish hard enough we will have a white Christmas!
- White paper – not too thick so you can fold them easily
- Clear String
- A Needle – to string them
- Clear tape – to hang them
- Glue – if you want to layer them like I did
Happy Snowflake Making!
