Pattern For Snowflake


  • 18 plastic drink holders
  • Slimline Stapler and staples
  • White glossy spray paint
  • Glitter
  • White quilting or carpet thread and needle
  • Ad
  • Gold or Silver spray paint (may be used for highlighting)


1. Fold each holder in half lengthwise and staple circles together at each end at top edge and one end.

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.

I've been looking for the directions for a long time, too, I have 2 of these snowflakes on my porch right now and I love them! This is a wonderful way to reuse these things so they don't end up in the landfill, and at the same time have fun and make something useful.
