Lollipop stick and button snowflakes

This month, the theme for my box of craft materials as a Bostik Blogger was Snow. We used the materials to make two snow themed crafts - a simple snowflake hanging decoration and a snow scene framed picture.

Button snowflake decoration

This craft was very simple to make. I used three lollipop sticks, glued together in the centre to form a star shape using Blu Tack White Glu. I did this myself in advance so that the lollipop sticks had plenty of time to dry. I also cut a loop from coloured ric rac which I taped in place at the top.

Then I gave Mia a pile of white buttons and sparkly pom poms, coated the front of the snowflake in white glue and let her position the embellishments. The White Glu was perfect for this craft - it driesdslowly so the decorations are re-positionable but when dry they were firmly stuck in place.

So simple and it will look lovely on the Christmas tree!

Then I used some sparkly cardboard to cut out a couple of picture frames. I cut out a piece of tracing paper to fit inside the frame, and Mia and I drew some snowy scenes.

We taped them inside the picture frames and decorated them with snowflake stickers and ric rac with a sprinkling of star sequins. Again, the White Glu was ideal for this craft, holding the ric rac in place beautifully. We had a lot of fun making these as it was something that we could sit down and do together! I'm not sure that Mia really understood the concept of drawing a snowy scene, but that doesn't matter, I love her picture!
