I saw on Pinterest different snowflakes and their pattern. I remembered how we used to create them in Kindergarten and school and decorated the window with them.
I didn’t want to put them on the windows, I rather wanted to attach them from the ceiling, because Elliott loves everything that moves and spins. He gets so fascinated by it and I love to watch him. We also bought a reindeer and a flying Santa last year in Germany. They are attached to a spring and when you pull on them the wings go up and down.
So I created different sizes of Snowflakes and different shapes. I didn’t follow any pattern and just went with the flow. Each Snowflake is different and I was always surprised how they turned out.
I just used normal printing paper, letter size. Some of the snowflakes I folded 8x and some of them 10x or 12x. The more you fold them, the harder it gets to cut them. I think if you use bigger paper, it might be easier with the cutting.
Then I punched a hole in the Snowflakes and attached white thread. I bought these white pins and just pushed them with my fingers into the ceiling. None of the thread is the same length. This way it give it a little more depths.
