How To: Snowflake Craft
So I am kind of so-so about decorating for Christmas before its even Thanksgiving, but since we have had actual snow around these parts, I figured it wasn't too soon for a winter craft.
I stole this idea straight out of a Pottery Barn for kids magazine. It was super easy.
You just cut out some snow flakes-- first grade style, iron them flat, apply spray adhesive to the backs and smack em on a pretty piece of fabric so they pop (although it occurs to me that you could just back them with cute paper and use a gluestick too). Then frame the whole thing up in a cheap IKEA frame, and voila...
I only wish Avery were older so she could help (but not really...really I want her to stay little forever). But if you have kids who have mastered the art of scissoring, this would make a fun snowy day project.
PS...Are you sick of seeing that teal wall yet? Its the wall in my office/craft room, and directly behind my computer, so it gets abused for photographs. Maybe I'll venture into the rest of the house someday.
