|This is a beautiful snowflake that would look lovely on the tree or as a seasonal garland. The children could just decorate it with painted patterns as well.
You will need 3 large Popsicle sticks – tongue depressor size and 6 standard Popsicles, white craft glue or wood glue, paint, and paper decorations if you want them.
Spend time arranging the sticks in the pattern shown in the photos. I did mine on a piece of white paper so I could make marks on it to show me where each piece went once I was happy with my placement.
Glue the two sizes of sticks together separately and then glue the large ones on top of the smaller ones.
Paint the snowflake all over.
Make some paper decorations. These ones are punched out from white paper – I didn’t have a snowflake shape so used a daisy one which worked just as well.
Coat the paper shapes in glue and then lay it glue side down in a bed of glitter. Press gently with your finger to ensure the glitter covers the whole shape. Leave to dry and then glue in place on the wooden snowflake.
