Decorate Your Home with Colorful Snowflakes + Fun Giveaway from Crayola

I've always been fascinated with Snowflakes and a big fan of them as well. They adorn my Christmas tree each year and they're always a part of my holiday decor. It will be our first Christmas in our new house so, I have tons of opportunity to get my creative home decor ideas to work! And for a last-minute additional holiday decor idea, I'm thinking pretty, colorful and glittery snowflakes!

And that's exactly what I did! I placed cascading snowflakes on my wall by my stairs. Thanks to Crayola*  for sending me my crafting essentials, I was able to pull-off these home decor idea successfully! Now my bare wall looks totally rockin' and the snowflakes are simply ah-mazing!

And in true snowflakes fashion, each one is not like the other. Below you'll find the basics on how to create your own snowflake. All you need is a piece of paper, scissor and lots of imagination!

1. Fold the paper into a triangle. Cut the excess.
2. If you unfold it, you should have a perfect square.
3. Fold the triangle in half to make a smaller triangle.
4. Fold one side halfway into the middle.
5. Fold the other remaining side on top of the folded one. Make adjustment to make sure fold is of equal size.
6. Cut the excess along straight line.
7. Start cutting your shape from bottom up.
8. Cut straight up until your final shape is in place.
9. Unfold and reveal your snowflake.

Note: small snowflakes follow the same procedure as above.

Now for the exciting part. Bling-ing and accessorizing the snowflakes!

In this project, I used the Glitter Glue and the Twistable Slick Stix. First, lightly color the entire snowflakes with your preferred color. To achieve an attractive contrast, put more color on the center of the snowflakes then choose a part of the edges that would get more color. Once that's done, start outlining certain areas of the snowflakes with glitter glue. More glitter, the better!

Let the glue dry then stick them on your preferred canvas and arrange them accordingly. The snowflakes I used in this project are huge in person and they look best on a huge blank wall. They also look good with smaller-sized snowflakes. So, make several sizes to complete your ensemble.

Personal note on Crayola products used.
I love the Twistable Slick Stix. It's easy to use, glides very smoothly and the colors are very vibrant and solid. It makes coloring quick and fast, and the color covers the surface evenly! Now that is very impressive. The only thing you need to watch out for is to make sure you have a protective paper underneath or you'll have crayon smudges everywhere. As for the Glitter glue, it simply works!
