Snowflake Popsicle Stick Craft
- Popsicle sticks (you need 4 for each snowflake)
- White craft paint
- Paper plate
- Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
- Glitter (for this project, I used fine iridescent glitter and jumbo glitter)
- Sequins (for this I used iridescent/clear sequins)
- Clear glue
- Small cup (optional for paint)
Pour a small amount of white paint in a small cup.
Place the popsicle sticks on the paper plate.
Paint each popsicle stick white. Allow plenty of time to dry. Use more coats if desired or necessary. (You do not have to paint the back of the sticks unless desired.) Make sure to paint the sides of the sticks, too.
Once dry, squirt a dab of hot glue in the center of one of the sticks. Place another popsicle stick on top, forming a + shape. Squirt a dab of glue in the center and place a stick diagonally. Do this again, making an X shape. This will form the complete snowflake.
Pour clear glue on the top of each popsicle stick and spread the glue around with the tip of the bottle. Use glitter or sequins to decorate the snowflake.
Set aside to dry.
