What You Need:

  • Newspaper
  • Sticks (we suggest buying them at the local craft store)
  • Metallic spray paint
  • Glue


1. Envision the design you want to create. Then, apply glue to the back of the sticks and adhere, pressing them firmly together. Set aside to dry.

2. Set newspaper on a flat surface. Place your snowflake on the surface and coat with metallic spray paint. Stand and let dry. Apply a second coat; stand and let dry.
