Giant Popsicle Stick Snowflake

Giant Popsicle Stick Snowflake


Tis the season for holiday decorations, so this Giant Popsicle Stick Snowflake is my solution for some inexpensive flakes that have a lot more impact than paper ones, and will last for seasons to come.


MATERIALS
• Jumbo Craft sticks, 6 per snowflake
• Craft sticks, 12 per snowflake
• Mini craft sticks, 6 per snowflake
• Wooden diecut circles
• Craft glue
• Acrylic paint white

DIRECTIONS
1. Cut circles out of cardboard for the center of your snowflake, roughly 2″ in diameter.
2. Glue six jumbo wooden sticks to the cardboard circle, evenly spaced, with craft glue.
3. Glue three mini sticks to each jumbo stick as shown. Let dry.

4. Paint both sides of snowflake with white acrylic paint and hang as desired.


I came up with this Craft Stick Snowflake to help students make a special gift for their parents that is inexpensive, non-denominational, and pretty quick to make. My sample measures about 10″ across, and is made from sticks that you can buy at Michaels or JoAnns. Even if you pay retail (without any coupons) the cost is about 35¢ per student for just the sticks. Not bad.

MATERIALS
• Mini Craft Sticks, 12
• Craft Stick Woodsies, 6
• Masking Tape
• Craft Glue
• Spray Paint, optional

DIRECTIONS
1. Tape the six longer sticks down in a star shape as shown so they don’t move while adding the small ones.
2. Arrange six of the smaller sticks on top to make a circle. Lift each up and place a large spot of glue underneath.
3. Add a large spot of glue near the ends of the large sticks and add six smaller ones across as shown.
