Easy Personalized Glitter Foam Snowflake Craft4:14 PM
This is the time of year for snowflake crafts! Since I like to do something a bit different with my crafts, and I'm always looking for ways to make each craft unique for each of my 5 kids, I created a craft that uses products readily available at Walmart. Each of these takes less than 15 minutes to create, and kids can make them to their own personal tastes!
To make these foam snowflakes, you'll need the following supplies (all available at Walmart):
- 1 sheet of glitter foam (silver) for each snowflake
- 1 bag of glitter foam letters OR
- 1 large glitter foam letter for each child's first or last name
- 1 pair of scissors
- 1 snowflake pattern
- Optional: foam glue
Then, I carefully cut out the shape, using sharp scissors. It is easier to make all the paralleled cuts first, then do the small detailed work last.
Your snowflake should look like this when you're done.
Now, you can choose the letters you want to personlize the snowflake with. I purchased both the small glitter "dot alphabet" letters and the large ones. Both have sticky backing already on them, so you don't have to use glue.
Arrange the letters BEFORE you stick them on. You may have to play around with the layout to fit them all on your snowflake.
My kids loved making these! If you have smaller children, you can always cut out the snowflake for them, and just let them stick on the letters. These snowflakes look wonderful hanging up by string or put onto the headboard of a bed, on a bedroom door, or on the cubby where they keep their winter hats and gloves!
