Wooden Snowflake Wreath

Cast a spell over a door with a supersize wooden snowflake made from paint sticks.

What You'll Need

  • Dinner plate
  • Marker
  • Newspaper (or craft paper)
  • Large wooden crafts paint sticks
  • Crafts glue
  • Small and medium wooden crafts sticks
  • Wooden coffee stirrers
  • Bags of wooden crafts shapes in squares and triangles
  • White spray paint
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Hot-glue gun and hotmelt adhesive

How to Make It

  1. To make a template, use a dinner plate and a marker to trace a circle onto a large piece of newspaper or crafts paper. Divide the circle evenly into sixths.
  2. Overlap two large paint sticks by 1/2 inch in the middle (for support), and glue the ends together to form the horizontal base of the snowflake. Repeat two more times.
  3. Lay the long sticks over the lines of the newspaper template, gluing at the center; let dry.
  4. Repeat the same process using medium-size crafts sticks and glue to the center of the snowflake, so the medium sticks fall between the angles made by the large paint sticks.
  5. Add two small crafts sticks to each medium stick at 30 degree angles and top with square wooden shapes.
  6. Continue adding crafts sticks and wooden shapes to the snowflake, as shown. Glue in place.
  7. When snowflake is dry, spray-paint the snowflakes white. Let dry.
  8. To hang, hot-glue a ribbon of your choice cut to the desired hanging length.
