This is such a cool decoration for Christmas. It is cheap so you can make a lot of them to really make an impact for the front of your home. There are different variations of it available but I like this one the best. Another aspect that I like about it, other then it being cheap and easy, is that it is already weatherproof.
You can find the video tutorial I used here:
Some variations I found are:
Wrap with small sized lights.
Wrap with dollar store tinsel garland.
Spray paint silver, gold or some other color of your choice.
Spray polyurethane on it and while it is still wet sprinkle glitter on it. Make sure to do this over an old sheet tarp. It would get messy. Think iridescent or a color to coordinate with your home color or theme inspiration.
You could really go to town with these and have several hanging from the front of your home or from large trees. You could use one for each window in your home. Your total minimal investment would be $2.00 for 12 hangers fro your local discount department store and a package of small zip ties which I got twenty for $1.75. I reinforced the ones I made with extra zip ties here and there so I used plenty of them. Instead of the floral piece the guy in the video used I went to Michaels and got medium sized thin wood cutouts. I spray painted them on both sides and heavily coated them with polyurethane to protect them from the elements. I hot glued these on. You can use your imagination for the center including leaving them with nothing in the middle. I like them that way as well.
Hang with twine or a thin piece of wire. Where the hanger is attached you could put a complimentary bow. I wouldn’t put the bow AND center piece though I think it would muddle the snowflake design a bit.
If you do this let me see them and I would be happy to share on this post. When submitting let me know what name to credit your design with.
