Winter Wall Decor
You will need:
* Stiff cardstock (cereal boxes or a discarded manila folder will do)
* White lightweight cardstock, enough to make six snowflakes 4-1/2 inches in size (around two letter/A4-sized sheets)
* Dark blue metallic paper (around half a roll of giftwrap or two letter/A4-sized sheets)
* Snowflake pattern cut from stiff paper (instructions here), or a snowflake die (like Spellbinders Shapeabilities 2010 Snowflake Pendant, etc.) and compatible die cut machine
* “Winter” text - Alpha stickers, rubber stamps, punch outs, die cuts, computer printout, or hand lettering with a marker is fine!
* Circle template, 1-1/2 inches in diameter
* Glitter glue (optional)
* Wide double-sided adhesive tape
* White glue
* Reusable adhesive like Blu Tack
* Narrow ribbon, 2 yards
* Hole punch
Cut six snowflakes measuring 4-1/2 inches in size from white cardstock.
Next, trace and cut six circles measuring 1-1/2 inches in diameter also from white cardstock. Mark the circles with letters to spell “Winter” using rubber stamps, punched or die cut letters, stickers, or handwriting. Glue the circles to the snowflakes and set aside.
Trace and cut six hexagons that are bigger than the snowflakes from cardboard. Cover one side of the hexagon with strips of double sided adhesive tape laid side by side. Remove the backing paper and adhere the blue metallic paper to the hexagon, and smoothen it out with your fingers.
Glue the snowflakes to the hexagons. At this point, you may want to apply glitter glue to the snowflakes.
Arrange the hexagons to spell “Winter” and attach them to the wall using a reusable adhesive like Blu Tack.
To make a garland:
Instead of adhering the hexagons to the wall with Blu Tack, punch a hole at the top of each hexagon. Thread a length of narrow ribbon through the holes, knotting the ribbon to keep the hexagons in place. Leave at least 12 inches of ribbon on each end, and tie the garland across a window, doorway, or wall.
