Making your own decorations for Christmas is a wonderful way to brighten your home and save money. One of the easiest and cheapest decorations are paper snowflakes.
Snowflakes can be made from plain white paper, or you can use wrapping paper for that extra flair and colour.
First, you need to cut our a circle of paper
To do this you need to find something round to trace. You can use plates or bowls or cups from the kitchen to get a range of different sizes.
Trace around them to get a good little circle. Then cut that circle out.
Next Step – folding
- Fold your circle in half.
- Fold it in half again.
- And fold it in half one last time.
You should have folded your circle 3 times.
Now it’s time to cut
Cut shapes and lines and patterns, starting from the fold. Don’t cut all the way across the wedge of paper that you have.
Once you have done enough cutting. Gently unfold your circle.
You will now have a wonderful little snowflake.
Try different sizes, different patterns and different ways to cut them.
We wish all of you a safe and Merry Christmas!
