Crafts & Activities
Cotton Swab Snowflakes
You will need:
You will do:
1. Spread wax paper on work surface. Use about an 18-inch piece for one snowflake.
2. Put the Q-tips together in any pattern you’d like. Use whole ones or break them. Try to make a six-sided snowflake to make it look more realistic.
3. Once the Q-tips are where you want them, pour white glue all over them, making sure that it covers the places where the ends meet. Use LOTS of glue!
4. While glue is still wet, sprinkle on glitter if using.
5. Allow snowflake to dry several hours or overnight. If not completely attached, add more glue and allow to dry again.
6. When dry, peel off snowflake and hang with fishing line.
