Need a quick and simple DIY? Walk into a winter wonderland with these beautiful laundry pin snowflakes. These are easily used as ornaments, gift box toppers, or fun room decorations. Take your pick! Follow along to see how we created them.

Supplies:

  1. Clothes pins (big and small)
  2. White spray paint
  3. Glitter
  4. Hot glue gun
  5. Felt puff balls

Step one: break apart the clothes pin to separate the two pieces.

This is what you should be left with.

To make the mini snowflakes, you will need 8 pins. Once you have broken the 2 pieces apart, flip them back to back. Use hot glue to seal them. Once you have all 8 pins sealed back to back, use the top center edges and glue them together as shown in the photos below.

Do the same steps for the larger snowflake. However, use the mini pins to fill in between the bigger ones.

Now, spray paint the snowflakes white. While they are still wet from the paint, sprinkle white/clear glitter all over. Allow to dry 10-15 min.

Then, glue one craft felt puff in the center.

Ta-da!

With the holidays coming in quick we are in DIY heaven! What’s better than personalized gifts? Make every present special this holiday season by putting your own personal spin to it. All my favorite gifts have been handmade. These gift boxes are also the perfect thing to gift Puravida Bracelets in. Make them for birthdays, holidays or any other special occasion. Let’s get started!

What you will need:

  1. Craft paper
  2. String
  3. Tape, scissors
  4. Tags and any other accessories you want to use to decorate
  5. Stensil provided

Begin by tracing the stencil onto your craft paper.

Use scissors to cut out the correct shape of the stencil.

The dotted lines in the stencil will guide you on where to fold your cutout. Once you have folded it into a box, use tape to secure the edges.

Use yarn or string to wrap around the box. Along with other decorations to add to the top!

Have fun and get creative to make it personal to the person you are giving it to!
