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!

I love this snowflake and the colors you chose. These are my favorite colors.
That is a fun craft to make to brighten up the holidays. A bit of ‘Frozen’.
Not only could my kids and I make one for the front door, but I’m sure my daughter would be all about pink & purple sparkles for the snowflakes and want to make one for her bedroom door!
I think pink and purple would look amazing on these snowflakes! Now I’m thinking I need to make a new version, lol.
Glitter and bling have been used wonderfully. Thanks for all of the great ideas.
Thanks for the great ideas! Although I hope it doesn’t snow quite yet.
I can’t believe you turned those pieces of wood into something so pretty! I wouldn’t have thought to use two different colors of glitter, really makes the project!
Thanks, Angelica! I was lucky I had the exact right shade of blue glitter on hand, lol.
I am in love with that snowflake! It looks easy to make and it’s just soooo pretty! 🙂
I would love to hang this on my front door.
These look so simple to make and they are lovely!
thanks for the opportunity
I am a huge fan of glitter! This snowflake really sparkles!
My niece is going to love this project.. she is going to decorate her door just like yours!
Thats a lovely ornament. I like how it is so light and pretty . It will be cherished!

This project looks so easy to do. It would give me another excuse to visit the craft store.
What a pretty effect with the subtle paint and glitter. Very cute!
What a cute idea! I love that you could also personalize it and have the kids help!
Beautiful – it came out great! I love the blue outline on those!
Who doesn’t love sparkly snowflakes? Thanks for the inspiration!
This is beautiful! I love it. It’s giving me ideas – you could do the same thing for Halloween, only with pumpkins, and instead of ‘let it snow’ you could do ‘trick or treat’. Great idea!
Ooo, I love the Halloween idea! And thank you!
Great idea to glue the silver cords on! I have always used tape but it doesn’t hold very well for heavier items. Duh – glue makes so much more sense. Thanks for the tip 😉
Originally, I was going to use tacky glue but went with hot glue at the last minute just to makes sure they stayed on.
This looks really easy and fun to make.
Love everything DIY, awesome!
I really like this craft. It’s something I would hang up. The shade of sparkly blue is very pretty.
I love the blue, too. It’s Martha Stewart’s Blue Sky.
This looks so elegant and expensive! If the neighbors find out how “easy” it is they will be knocking on your door.
The blue sparkles are a nice touch. My daughter would like to help me with this.
Just getting into the holiday crafts. This looks not only fun but very decorative for the winter months.

This is so beautiful and I love the colors too. I am pinning to do and I love partying with you.
Thanks, Vanessa! Yes, this hop has such an amazing selection of crafts.
Nice work. I am brainstorming ideas for my front door. I have three wooden snowmen up in my year. Something like this fits in Exactly with my theme. Its bright, fresh and fun.
Thank you, Leanna! I found the large snowflake at Target in their Bullseye section and the smaller ones at Hobby Lobby, but they have wooden snowflakes at just about every craft store.
Love the beautiful snowflakes! So pretty!
Thank you, Michelle! I’m definitely keeping this one up until the end of January.
Super cute idea to combine all the snowflakes to create a larger door hanging. Fun idea!
Thank you, Erlene! At first I was concerned the silver cord connecting them would look too weird or obvious, but I hardly even notice them.
