Winter Craft: Coffee Filter Snowflakes

coffee-filter-snow-flakesThis is a super fast, quick, easy and cheap winter craft. See instructions and pattern links below photos.

 We first started making the out of printing paper. The snowflakes were great but very hard for little hands to cut. We switched over to coffee filters.

This has become a winter tradition for us. Every year the boys hang snowflakes  all over the walls. I keep them there all winter.

I do not recommend hanging on ceiling fans- my 10 year old had to try it.


Hard to see them on the wall, but it’s very pretty. The neighborhood school kids were impressed. :-)

You can also hang them with thread.

.
Instructions

  1. Flatten coffee filter
  2. Fold it in half
  3. Fold in half again, and continue until you can no longer fold
  4. Cut shapes along the folded edges and  the outside edge of the filter.

Snowflake Instructional Video

Try folding the  coffee filters like this guy in the video folds paper (no need to cut before folding when using a coffee filter). He recommends ironing snowflakes when done. IRONING? This is suppose to be fun.

    The unfolded snowflake in the top set of pictures is NOT what your’s will look like if you cut your coffee filter the way they show. its looks pretty but nothing like the snowflake they show up in the photo !

    The snowflake instructions are not for the same snowflake that is shown. Its much less ornate, not so much pretty.
