Snowflakes from Cardboard Tubes

From the blog: “The process is pretty easy. Each of the tubes are flattened, cut into 1 inch segments of different lengths, and then spray-painted white (or whatever color you prefer). The different size loops are hot glued together to make the snowflake shape.”

These snowflakes bring an old-fashioned feel to holiday decorating. They can be made as a plain and simple ornament or you can add glitter, feathers, or other bits and pieces to jazz them up. Use them as gift toppers, tree ornaments, or even hang them on the wall.

Lace Snowflakes from the Aunt Peaches blog

Lace is lovely to look at, but we don’t often get out grandma’s lace tablecloth for everyday use, so perhaps it’s time to use it as the basis for a family heirloom. This blog teaches you how to make beautiful snowflakes from lace (get yours from a thrift shop if you can’t bear to cut up grandma’s tablecloth!).

We look forward to seeing how you decorate our apartment community with snowflakes this month! Next time we’ll be sharing tips for celebrating New Year’s Eve, so stay tuned.
