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!

Greetings from Alberta!

Hey guys! Anna Lengstrand sent us these amazing shots from Northern Alberta, Canada where she spent her holidays.  Anna told us that when they were outside adventuring, it was so cold that the camera would shut down, but she was luckily able to catch some truly awesome snow scenes as she embarked on a snowshoe adventure down Bear Creek.  Check them out below!

In Anna’s own words: “2014 was a though year for me with many challenges; I learned so much about myself and what I value in life and what makes me truly happy. To quote MindBodyGreen, the choice to embrace life fully must come from the inside. Once you find it, your world is forever changed. Choosing to accept yourself as you are in this moment is real freedom.”
