Wood sticks snowflakes

After taking down my Christmas Wreath our front door looked so bare-but what kind of wreath can you make for January? I decided to go with snowflakes. A normal winter in Utah is very white, it usually snows a couple of times a week. But something is wrong this year-not only did we not have a white Christmas we haven’t had any snow in weeks!

So I’m hoping my snowflake door will help open up the heavens and we’ll have a lot of snow coming our way so that Mojo and I can hit the slopes

I’ve had these wood sticks lying around for a while and decided they would make perfect snowflakes!

I glued two sticks one on top of the other creating a cross with my trusty glue gun. Then took two more sticks and glued them on diagonally creating my snowflake.

Then I took white acrylic paint and mixed it with a few squirts of pool blue apple tart paint. We all know snow is never just pure white.

To make my smaller snowflakes I simply broke my long sticks in half and glued them together in the same way.

It’s not the most elaborate or the most beautiful-but it did fit in my $0 budget and it’s better than a blank door. What have you been doing to spruce up your home after the holidays?
