Easy Christmas Decor: DIY Snowflakes From Paper Doilies

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I like to fully embrace the Christmas season starting the day after Thanksgiving, some people it’s the first of December, if your a department store its July. In celebration of our new place, my husband and I are hosting an all-apartment complex party- don’t worry its only 30 units rather than 100’s. With that, we are trying to go all out for decorations. 

While I was going through my craft box to find white printer paper to cut out snowflakes, I came across my paper doilies that I have had a knack for hoarding a bit. I grabbed them and did a quick google search. I came across this wonderful YouTube video! So easy and quick, whereas snowflakes from plain paper is really hard, well for me at least! This is a good one for kids too.

Directions:

  1. Use any size you want! Fold 3 times (4 times for an extra little challenge and intricacy).
  2. Cut different shapes out along the folded edge. \
  3. The more you make the more you learn and explore different shapes and styles. I kind of went crazy. It was a blast. I hung them from my ceiling with sewing thread. They are 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable. Have fun!

Below is the video I referenced.
