Frozen Craft: Coffee Filter Snowflakes

Frozen_coffee-filter-snow-flakesThis is a super fast, quick, easy and cheap winter craft or Frozen movie theme party fun.

 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.

Snowflake 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.

  1. Very pretty! I love to make snowflakes too. Especially since we don’t get much real snow where we live. We have never hung them from the ceiling. We will have to try that.
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. I did this with my first grade class. They loved it. After they were done cutting we also added glitter to make them look more festive.

  7. Hey, just wanted to let you know that I blogged about doing this with my daughter today. See here: http://www.conqueringcrafts.com/2012/12/christmas-crafts-in-cafe.html

    The unfolded snowflake in the top set of pictures is not exactly what your’s will look like if you cut your coffee filter the way they show. it does look pretty.

  9. Andrea

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

  10. You have amazing stuff right.

  11. No matter if some one searches for his required thing,
    therefore he/she wishes to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.

    your instructions say fold in half, half again, and half again. this will give you 8 sections. your template of your folds show 6.

  13. So cute and easy. I love re-purposing household stuff for creative adventures!
