From the Archives: My boys have been busy making snowflakes and hanging them all over the walls. It looks nice, like its snowing inside.
This 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.
Hard to see them on the wall, but its very pretty. Neighborhood school kids were impressed.
You can also hang them with thread.
I don’t recommend hanging on ceiling fans- my 10 year old had to try it.
- Flatten coffee filter
- Fold it in half
- Fold in half again, and continue until you can no longer fold
- Cut shapes along the folded edges and the outside edge of the filter.
How to 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.
