Happy Tuesday! I'm SO excited to share this next project with you all. The other day, while the snow was falling outside, the kids and I were crafting inside. I don't know about you, but there's nothing better than a snowy winter day to put me in the crafting mood.
This fun project was inspired by the wooden snowflakes that Pauline from My Altered State has been creating. Have you seen her snowflakes? That girl is super talented and completely inspired me to make my own.
Thankfully, I've been keeping all my wood scraps in a bucket just in case I got inspired to create something with them. I dug through the bucket and found a bunch of small pieces that were perfect for building a wooden snowflake. I started with two large pieces and twelve smaller pieces of wood, but quickly my snowflake evolved to also include craft sticks and wooden beads.
For the base of my snowflake I crossed the two long pieces of wood and secured them with wood glue and a nail.
I debated wether or not to leave the snowflake as is (I actually liked the weathered wood look), paint it white or add glass glitter. Well, the glass glitter won. I didn't have spray adhesive, so I just painted on a thin layer of Mod Podge and sprinkled the glitter on top.
