My kids love doing popsicle stick crafts. This year they wanted to decorate the tree but I wanted to do something I could hang sound the house after Christmas so that's why we chose popsicle stick snowflakes. I can hang them around the house until at least March right?! So here is our Popsicle Stick Snowflake Craft it was a great way to get the kids distracted during the holiday break!
We have a craft cabinet where I keep all sorts of supplies at the ready for craft time. You can have a plastic box tucked away in a closet and pull it out when the kids are out of school. However, if you do it I suggest having popsicle sticks on hand always. There are some amazing crafts you can do with them!
Where can I get bulk popsicle sticks for crafts?
I like getting my popsicle sticks on Amazon you can get over 1,000 of them for less than $10 or a few hundred for less than $5! This will last us maybe a year with 5 kids if encourage them to do other crafts too. But they always seem to drift back to popsicle sticks even when I offered them edible slime!
How many Popsicle sticks make a snowflake?
You really only need 4 popsicle sticks to make a simple snowflake. If you want to get more elaborate you can create your own design and see where your imagination takes you.
What color is a snowflake?
While I used blue or white paint to match the snow color you really can use any colors to match your Christmas tree. I like to keep an assortment of acrylic paints on hand for any craft I am doing.
We used all different color sequins but using all silver on a blue snowflake would be really pretty, or blue on blue. Again you can match your colors to any dress decorations or home decor.
When Christmas is over and we pack up our tree we take our Popsicle Stick Snowflake Crafts and hang them along the walls between photos, down the hall, in windows, basically where ever the kids want to show them off. They fit great as winter decor and I love having a little extra sparkle in the house!

How to make Popsicle Stick Snowflakes
Next, paint the sticks with the color of your choice, we used a light blue to give them a little more depth. We used Sky Blue by Apple Barrel. Make sure to paint both the front and the back and then let dry completely.
Glue the sequins on in a pattern form or get creative and make up your own design. Again let dry completely.
Attach a ribbon or string to the back for hanging.
I suggest letting it dry overnight before hanging it on your tree.
