If you’re anything like me, you’d love to keep holiday decorations up longer. I think a great solution is to make your decorations more about snow and winter. This Sparkly Snowflake Decor is the perfect solution and I’ll be able to keep it up far into January, even though there is no snow in Florida. Glitter is my snow now, lol.

Sparkly Snowflake Decor
- Large Wood Snowflake
- 3 Smaller Wood Snowflakes
- Wood “Snow” Cutout
- Silver Cord
- White Paint
- Light Blue Paint
- White Fine Glitter
- Lt. Blue Fine Glitter
- Paint Brushes
- Mod Podge
- Clear Tacky Glue
- Ocean Blue Vinyl OR
- Small Wood Letters
one: Paint the large wood snowflake white on the front, back, and sides. Set it aside and let it dry completely. You will probably need to paint two or three coats.
two: Paint the three smaller snowflakes white on the front, back, and sides. Set them aside and let them dry completely. These will also take more than one coat.
three: Paint the wooden “Snow” or other wintery saying one coat of white on the front and sides only. Let it dry completely.
four: Now paint the wooden word blue. Two or three coats will do.
five: Lightly dry brush the blue paint on the edges of all of the snowflakes.
six: Apply Mod Podge to the snowflakes, a section at a time, then generously sprinkle the white fine glitter on top of the Mod Podge.
seven: On just the largest snowflake, lightly sprinkle some blue fine glitter along the edges.
eight: Cover the wooden word with Mod Podge and cover it generously with blue fine glitter.
nine: Use your Cricut to cut out “Let It” on blue vinyl. OR, paint small wood letters blue and cover them in glitter, too. If you can find the whole snowy, wintery saying in one piece, even better. Let all of the glittered pieces dry and set completely.
ten: Cut three 7-inch lengths of silver cord, one for each of the smaller snowflakes. Tie one end in a knot on all three small snowflakes.
eleven: Use tacky glue or hot glue to adhere the wooden word(s) to the largest snowflake.
twelve: Stick the Vinyl letters on if you have them. I covered mine with Mod Podge and glitter so they’d match, but I’m a little insane with the glitter. They do make some very pretty glittered vinyl you could use.
thirteen: Glue the silver cords with the attached snowflakes to the bottom three arms of the largest snowflake, at different levels so they don’t line up. Cut off any extra cord. You could also use a staple gun if you prefer.
fourteen: Attach a Command Strip to the back or hammer in one of those hanging bars.
That’s it! You know when you make glittered and painted projects they will take a while because you have to wait for everything to dry, but I think this Sparkly Snowflake Decor is worth every minute. Besides, it will make up for not getting any snow here in Florida. If only those snowflakes also brought cooler temperatures!
