Sparkling Snowflakes Wreath

Isn’t it funny how one thing often leads to another when browsing the web?

I can be searching for something as mundane as “how to remove a juice stain” and before I know it I’m clicking on a dinner recipe, or reading some interesting article, or gleefully wading through a gallery of craft ideas!

Don’t ask me how I bumped into the little project I will feature in this post.

I can tell you one thing, for sure. I was not looking for it. 😉

If you’ve shopped the aisles of any of the craft super-stores, you know that the supplies for paper crafts are endless. They call out to me – especially when they’re on sale – and I’ve accumulated a nice little collection. I don’t use them very often, and that’s a shame because working with paper can be incredibly soothing. (Must be the kid in me that feels that way!)

Today, I have an ornament to show you. It caught my eye because it’s made with something I already have – a Martha Stewart snowflake stamp!

In fact I already had most of the supplies!

There was only one I had to buy . . .

I had never used Stickles before (Where have I been?), but are they ever fun! Who could resist glitter that rolls on easily and dries sparkly? I’m of the opinion that everything looks better with a hint of glitter. 😀

Isn’t this pretty? (This is the back side.) Nice for the Christmas tree and gorgeous for a package tie-on!

And here’s the front of the ornament. It has a very cool 3-d effect in person. I think this decoration is holiday-neutral enough to keep on display all winter long!!


If you, too, have an urge to play with paper, the directions can be found here.

Hugs,

  1. Oh, I love this!!! Sparkles and snowflakes…it can’t get any better!!! 😀 I love how you twinkled up the top snowflakes not just with the Stickles, but also with rhinestone centers. So pretty! I need to make some of these. Thanks for another great idea, Crystal! … I just discovered Stickles last year. Have a really fun week! xoxo

  2. Very pretty! I don’t do paper crafts. When I saw the first pic of the flake I thought, “man, I could never snip those flakes so perfectly”. Silly me never thought about a paper punch. How cool!

  3. Donna,
    I would like to make more but time will tell if I do or not. I have a list of things I want to make and the question is always whether I should spend time making multiples of a project or move onto the next thing.

    Time – wish I could bottle it. 🙂

  4. Well here I am….dropping by at the end of the week. If you ever figure out how to bottle “time” please let me know! LOL!!

    I love your snowflake ornament! It’s beautiful! I would for sure display it all Winter long. You did a wonderful job! Now I’m gonna have to get a snowflake punch and some of that glitter glue cause I would love to make these!
    “Thanks for the inspiration Crystal.”
    (hugs)

  5. Thank you, Michelle!
    I know you are very talented with paper crafts and cards – so I’m especially flattered by your comment! 😀 xo

  6. I’m late this week. The homework and preparing for a meeting a my house yesterday made for a crazy week. I decorated for Halloween so the house looked great for the rescue group meeting.

    I love the snowflake wreath. I decorate after Christmas with snowmen, snowflakes, and a couple of penguins. Decorating after Christmas helps keep me from getting depressed about the end of the holidays. We also have a dinner in January for our rescue group and this gives me something to look forward to doing.
    Even though I’m craft challenged, this looks like something that I could do. Thank you for the great idea!
