✄DIY✄ Popsicle stick snowflake

I was browsing through pinterest when I saw pins of how to make snowflakes out of popsicle sticks. I loved the idea and decided I want to try it out as well. If you want to know how I made my snowflake out of popsicle sticks - continue reading.

So what do we need for this DIY?


  • Popsicle sticks
  • Hot glue
  • (Paint / Spray paint / Glitter & Glue)




Step 1:

Take five popsicle sticks. Glue three of them in one line and two of them to the sides, just like in the picture. Continue this step till you have six pieces like this one.



Step 2:

Take all the six pieces and glue them together just like in the picture.



Step 3:

Take another two popsicle sticks and glue them together just like in the picture. Continue doing this between all the gaps. After you're finished, your snowflake will look like this:


You can either leave it like that or paint it. You can just paint it with normal paint or spray paint. I decided to glue some glitter on it to make it sparkle.




So I took took some old papers to make less mess. Then I took normal paper glue stick, made the whole snowflake sticky and poured tons of glitter all over it.

I realized the glitter didn't completely cover the sticks, but I still like the effect. If I'll do this again, I would definitely first paint the snowflake white before applying the glitter.


In the end I took a pin and pinned it on my wall and hung my snowflake on it. This is the result:

    1. Klopt! Het is zeker heel makkelijk om te maken, maar je moet soms wel snel en nauwkeurig zijn, vooral bij stap drie, want de lijm droogt snel :)
