It’s now December, which means – BOXES! I have tons & tons of boxes and I like to try to upcycle as many as I can. I thought these cardboard snowflake ornaments would be a fun craft for my son’s 1st grade classmates to make. They loved it!
Random fact: Most snowflakes will fall at a rate of 1-4 mph dependent on the individual snowflake’s mass and surface area, as well as the environmental conditions surrounding its descent.
I like to share these random facts with my kids while we craft – thought I would share them with all of you too!
- Scissors or exacto knife
- White & blue paint
- Thin paint brush

- Cut your cardboard into a circle. Ours was roughly 4″ across. To do this I used a cup and traced a circle onto my cardboard, then cut it out with scissors.
- Paint your circle with white paint & allow it to dry.
3. Draw on your snowflake lines using a pencil. This will be your guide for painting your blue.
4. Using your thin paint brush – carefully paint over your pencil markings. Allow everything to dry.
5. Go over your blue paint with glue. We used clear glue but any type of glue should work!
6. Sprinkle everything with glitter! Shake off any excess & allow to dry.
7. Poke a hole at the top of your circle and add a ribbon for hanging – you’re finished!
