One winter, my mom came up to me with a twinkle in her eye and asked me to make snowflakes. It turns out, she wanted to cover the upstairs window with "frost" so that there could be more sun and privacy. It worked so well, it stayed up 'till spring, long after the snow on the ground thawed!
Total Time: depends on how many snowflakes you make
- 1 spray can of fake snow (at Family Dollar) ($1.00)
- Cut out a bunch of paper snowflakes, some big and some small
- Clear the area beneath where you want to spray. Don't do what I did, haha!
- Make a couple rolls of tape and snip apart to fit the size of each snowflake. You will need to apply several bits of tape so that the snowflake is held firmly in place on the glass, with few gaps.
- Arrange the snowflakes on the glass. I put my biggest in the corner and had the others kind of drifting around it. I still wanted to use the mirror somewhat, so I left the inside blank.
- Gently begin spraying the fake snow. Spray a heavier layer in circles around each snowflake so the imprint shows up. I recommend that the further away you spray from the snowflakes, the more transparent the snow should be.
- Carefully peel away the snowflakes and any tape left behind. Make sure to wipe up snow around the surface, especially if it gets on finished wood.
- Enjoy your new decoration all season long!
