Project of the Day:
It's time to start the winter decorations! I love the look of white against brick- and since we have that HUGE brick wall with windows- the first decoration I wanted to make was a snowflake garland. I loved the shapes of the snowflakes in this pin:
Originally a How-To from Martha Stewart, the snowflake tutorial was found at Inspiration for the Home. You really can't go wrong with these. I mean, who didn't make snowflakes when they were in 2nd grade? The instant they let you break away from those safety scissors it is snowflake making time! In case you forgot how, here's the easy how-to:
Step 1: You'll need a square piece of paper, so cut the end of your computer paper off, and fold the remaining square in half to form a large triangle:
Step 2: Fold the large triangle in half so you have a medium sized triangle:
Step 3: Fold the left side in towards the middle, and then do the same with the right side, overlapping the left side you just folded:
Step 5: Start cutting. Make each snowflake different using curves, squares, triangles, and big or small cuts.
This many scraps of paper later...
