Create sticky snowflakes with yarn and contact paper! A fun and easy alternative to paper snowflakes for kids.

If you’re looking for a fun way to bring the winter weather inside, these sticky snowflakes are just the thing! And if you prep the materials ahead of time, they are great for younger children who may not have their cutting skills down yet.

And the best thing is, if you don’t have white yarn, it’s okay! Colored yarn really pops on the clear background and creates a lovely suncatcher effect.

MATERIALS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Prep your materials

    Start by cutting out the center of your paper plate, cutting two squares of contact paper big enough to cover the hole in the plate. You can also cut some pieces of yarn in a variety of lengths.

  2. Make your frame

    Peel the back off of one piece of contact paper and stick it to the center of the plate. Make sure to leave the sticky side up, so you can attach your yarn.

  3. Create your sticky snowflake!

    Stick your pieces of yarn to the contact paper to create a snowflake. Just like real snowflakes, each one is going to be different and its own unique design!

  4. Finish up

    Stick your other piece of contact paper on top of your design. Then use your hole punch to punch 2 holes in the top of your paper plate frame. String a pipe cleaner through to create a hanger for your snowflake.

You can hang your snowflakes up in the window for a pretty winter suncatcher! Whether you use white or colored yarn, the effect is beautiful. You’ll want to make these again and again!
