Christmas Countdown Day #8 – Glitter Snowflakes

This glitter snowflakes craft was so easy to put together and needs only two basic supplies – glitter and contact paper!

This post comes pretty late as I forgot to take out the extremely curled up contact paper to prep it for the activity. I had to place it under the carpet and under something heavy overnight before it was easier to work with. After straightening out the contact paper, I cut out three snowflakes using this snowflake tutorial. I couldn’t manage to cut very intricate patterns as the folded contact paper became quite thick and hence wasn’t so easy to cut through all the layers.

All excited to start on the craft!

Thankfully I brought the activity outside the house as my hubby is extremely particular when it comes to mess and it’s glitter we’re talking about! – we all know how difficult it is to get rid of it.

After all the glitter snowflakes were done, I brought them into the house and took a photo before sticking them outside our home. It’s so shiny, even in the day! icon smile Christmas Countdown Day #8   Glitter Snowflakes
