Are you in an area with snow? Do you long for snow? Me personally, I like a little bit of snow but I hate it when it is up to my knees. They one thing I can say is that I love the way fresh snow looks falling from the sky and sitting on the ground. It is one of God’s greatest creations!
Today we are making a snowflake garland or banner. I’m excited because I used my new paint markers and man where they fun. This was a very simple projects and because of the paint markers it only took me about 30 minutes to do.
Lets Get Started
Not only was this project fast but it also did not take a lot of supplies. I used 2 packs of snowflakes from Dollar Tree, and some little snowflakes from Hobby Lobby. I know there is a snowflake garland pictured here but it was to short and I did not use it. I also used the Arteza Acrylic Paint Markers. If you do not have paint markers then please use what ever paint you have. The last thing I used was twine. One that was natural and one that was white bakers twine.
You must decide what you want to hang the snowflakes on, how long you want your garland to be, and then how many snowflakes you want to put on it. I think a garland with lots of snowflakes would be pretty. Next thing you will do is paint the snowflakes. This is where I used the paint markers. Everything took one coat with the markers except the silver. That one took 2 coats. Now you can paint all your snowflakes one color if you want. I used some blues and teals to make an ombre affect. Then the little snowflakes I colored silver and white.
Once the snowflakes are dry, take some twine and tie the snowflakes to what ever you are hanging them on. I am using natural twine to hold the snowflakes and to tie the big snowflakes onto the garland. The little snowflakes I tied on with white bakers twine.
How easy was that? I wish I could have gotten the whole thing in the picture but it was too long and I did not have a spot to take a good picture of it. It looks so neat though. I love garlands and banners. They are great for big walls like a hallway. Garlands are very easy to make and can be changed out depending on the holiday. They can even been layered together.
Thank you for joining me today. Next week we will start some Valentine’s crafts. Also check your Dollar Trees near you because new everyday decor is coming out. If you like the farm house stuff, they have windmills you hang outside. I got a few and can not wait to DIY with them.
