I am in LOVE with these snowflakes... in fact, I'm a little obsessed. Last year I came across toilet paper tube snowflakes on Pinterest. I thought they were awesome... so I started saving my trash... toilet paper tubes, paper towel tubes, empty wrapping paper tubes (along with my glass jars, tin canes, etc... I love to collect trash). I had my students make some snowflakes, and my aide made some really awesome ones, then I found some time to make some... and now I can't stop making them.
So, here's a little tutorial....
2. flatten the tubes and cut them into 1/4" pieces.
5. From there I tried to get creative. I folded the shapes in different ways and hot glued them together.
these snowflakes from The Crafty Sisters. I even searched for pictures of actual snowflakes and tried to copy those.
Here are some of the different snowflakes I made.
I then spray painted them turquoise and added a little glitter. They also look awesome white or silver... and glitter is the best finishing touch!
I hung mine in my living room window.
Now, start saving your trash and have fun! But don't get too obsessed:)
