Fun decorations for Christmasy windows: Hot glue snowflakes!
When the last of the leaves have been blown from the trees by the icy wind and everything is coated in a white sheet of frost or even snow, it's time to make things cozy inside of our own four walls.
And why stop at the walls? Windows are great places for decorations as well and with this simple idea you can add some beautiful snowflakes to your view of the winter landscape...
- snowflake template printouts
- baking paper
- hot glue gun
- glitter (optional)
- spray paint (optional)
Print out various snowflake templates and tape a sheet of baking paper on top of them. If you have the talent and patience, you can also draw your own designs.
Slowly trace the snowflake shape with the hot glue gun.
If you're in the mood, you can also add a bit of glitter to your snowflake...
... or spruce it up with some spray paint.
When the glue is dry, you should be able to remove it easily from the the baking paper.
Now that you've seen how easy they are to make you'll probably want to make a whole blizzard's worth. Go for it! The more the merrier. After all, one little snowflake on a big window looks a bit lonely, doesn't it?
