Craft Stick Snowflake


I saw a great project on Pinterest the other day using craft sticks to make a snowflake.  I thought to myself “I can do this”.  And I did.

 
I started by cutting 24 craft sticks in half and then glued them together to make an approximate 90 degree angle – nothing exact going on here. 




Then I took a quarter – I couldn’t find the washers out in the garage and I don’t have any wooden discs on hand – and started gluing. 



Then I glued some more. 




I had one tiny freak out moment when the photographer (my eldest daughter) informed me that I had hot glued my rings.  Emeralds and hot glue are not a good mix. 



Then I glued a little more until I got the balanced look I desired. 



I was going to paint and glitter it up but I decided it looked good “natural” against my blue living room wall.
