Sparkle Snowflake Craft

Hi guys, it’s been a bit since I got crafty so I thought I’d spruce up my mantel with some extra winter decor.  If you remember, I changed up my mantel decorations for Christmas and went all white and metallic, so I was pleasantly surprised that my Christmas mantel was actually perfect for all of winter.

The softness of the deer, wreath, garland, and silvery trees are a wintery wonderland in my living room.  I did decide to make one more item to add (big surprise there, I know) – a sparkling wooden snowflake craft.

I’ve had this Sparkle Mod Podge (affiliate link) for a while and I have been dying to try it.  You see, I’ve come to terms with the fact that glitter and I just don’t work well together.  I think it’s so pretty but it seriously hates me.  Every time I’ve tried to use it, it becomes a big mess and then I’m picking glitter out of every crevice in my home for weeks.  I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect with this Mod Podge – sparkles inside the glue?  It sounded too good to be true.

You guys, it is amazing!  From the moment I brushed it on, I knew this would be a match made in heaven.  Take that, glitter!

Here are my supplies:

  • Thin wooden sticks of your choice – popsicle sticks are easily available at craft stores, or rulers
  • White craft paint
  • Sparkle Mod Podge (Affiliate link… which means I might get a few cents from Amazon if you make a purchase after clicking this link.  Thank you for your continued support!)

I started with 10 6-inch wooden rulers and painted one side white.

Cut 5 of them in half.  (I actually did this pretty easily with scissors since the wood was thin, but you might have a better tool to use!)  Cut a triangle off one end of each like below – alternate which side you cut.

Let’s hope this winter doesn’t include much more snow than this.  Stay warm, friends!

And check back in a few days for a new chair makeover that I’m working on now.  🙂

    Lovin’ that sparkle! Like you glitter is not a product I can control well but I might have to give this a go. I did buy some lovely glittery paint from Rust-oleum that works quite well but there’s not as much sparkle in it!
