So, to at least make it feel like a white Christmas, we decided to make snow flakes. How do you do that, you may wonder? Well, we took white paper and cut it into 4 squares and then folded those in half twice and we started snipping and clipping here and there! And voila! Snowflakes:-)
Here is Brenna with her glittery ones....
And Fiona with a few of her snowflakes....
And this is all of our un-glittered ones. I think the girls did beautifully for their first time making snowflakes and I know they had a very fun time(especially with glitter dust).
And as you can see...we are having some flurries;-)
So, what kind of home-made decorations are you making? Or do you have some very special keepsake decorations that you or someone made you when you were young?
The paper snowflakes are something I used to love making with my Mom when I was a child. It was always so fun to try to make unique designs with them. This time I tried some new techniques and they came out quite nice:-) We also use to make salt-dough ornaments and paint them...we did this last year to give as gifts for family.
I look forward to seeing some of your Christmas craftiness...leave me a note and your blog address and I'll come take a peek!
