Christmas Papercraft 4: DIY Snowflake Garland

December 24, 2010

Another way to use paper snowflakes

It’s been a few years since I’ve taken scissors to white paper to cut out snowflakes.  I love how each snowflake is unique, just like real ones!  This year I went an extra step and sewed the paper snowflakes into garlands.  I made short garlands, each string with three or four snowflakes.  But you could easily sew them into one long garland for a Christmas tree decoration.

Sewing the snowflakes into garlands

I simply sewed each snowflake down an imaginary center line and left about two inches of thread between snowflakes.

I tied a bead to the bottom of each of my garlands so that they would hang down nicely.

I used the finished garland to make a snowflake “valance” in my kitchen window.

I'm not the only one thinking of a white Christmas. Here's the Starbucks sign for this holiday season.
