Materials

  • 18 plastic drink holders
  • Slimline Stapler and staples
  • White glossy spray paint

2. Staple 9 holders together at top edge to form a large circle. Staple both sides.

3. Run a double thread through the middle of each side, draw tight and tie off.

4. Place the flat side of each snowflake together and staple ends of each holder together.

5. Spray one side at a time with white paint and sprinkle with glitter before the paint dries.

6. Add clear fishing line for hanger.

You have just saved 18 plastic drink holders from being trown into the landfill or a lake for a fish or bird to swallow.
