How to Make Snowflakes that Cling to Glass


Winter is the perfect time for decorating with snowflakes. My children always enjoy making paper snowflakes with scissors and folded paper.  We hang them from the ceiling with thread and a piece of clear tape. Then it looks like it’s snowing in the house.


This year I found a craft in the Family Fun magazine, which was to make snowflakes that cling to glass.

How to Make Snowflakes that Cling to Glass

Step 1: First you draw a snowflake with pencil on a sheet of white paper.

Step 2: Put a sheet of wax paper on top of it. I taped them both down so that they wouldn’t slide around.

Step 3: Get dimensional fabric paint (the glittering crystal one), and you trace the entire snowflake with it. It sort of looks like glue. Make sure it’s thick; if it’s too thin it will break when you try to peel it off. I found an alternate way to do it with glue as well. You use white school glue and shake glitter on it. They look just as good as the ones I made.

Step 4: Let it dry overnight. Peel it off the wax paper and stick it to a window.

    Merry CHRISTmas, Susan, to you and your beautiful family.

    Thank you! Merry Christmas to you, too! Merry Christmas to everyone! (Just this morning I said to my husband, “It doesn’t feel like Christmas. It feels like someone died.” He said, “I know.” So we’re both gloomy, despite my cheerful Merry Christmases.)
