DIY Snowflakes


The weather here has been terrible these past few days. One minute it's raining cats and dogs, and the next it's bright and sunny. Not sure whether I should remain indoor or out! We decided to stay indoors yesterday and I raided my hubby's CD-ROM stack. He had lots of CD-ROMS that had not been used for over 10 years. In the end, my little boy and I made snowflakes which we hung just outside the hallway. It's a great addition to our Christmas decorations!

I think everyone knows how to make paper snowflakes
so I won't go into it in detail. I used old magazines to get
the different details & colours - no need to buy paper!

My son pondering over what part of the
magazine to cut out the snowflakes!

Old CD-ROMS - thanks hubby!!

The CD-ROMS add sparkle and provide a hard backing
to the paper snowflakes. Use craft glue or a glue stick

to stick the snowflakes on!

String them together...

  1. Great idea to use those old CDS to add sparkle to the snowflakes!!

    We've had the same weather here - I'm off now to try and mow our lawn while it's sunny - more heavy rain is coming this afternoon - and our garden is rapidly turning into a jungle!!
