Don’t you just LOVE a paper straw craft?! I sure do! Every year I like to create a new ornament to make with the kids for their Christmas tree. So this year, we made paper straw snowflake ornaments. This snowflake tutorial is super simple and a little addictive to make!
You can get pretty creative with your color combinations and designs. A couple years ago I made paper straw Christmas trees and they have always been a huge success. So I was happy to finally check this craft off my craft to-do list!
Let’s get started!
Paper straw snowflake tutorial supplies:
- Darice Colorful Paper Straws
- 4 inch Darice Pearlized Snowflakes
- Hot Glue & Glue Gun
- Darice Baker’s Twine
Step 1. Let’s start off by picking out your paper straws and then cutting them in half. There are so many great paper straw options out there, but with this craft we decided on our favorite Christmas color combo, the mint and red.
Step 2. Next, since these snowflakes are ornaments I needed to break the top part off so that I can use this as the center of our craft.
They POP off super easy!
Step 3. Now have the kids lay their design out before adding any glue. This will give them an idea of where to put their hot glue when ready.
We decided to shorten a couple of the paper straws to make different sizes.
Step 4. Let’s add our hot glue! If you have younger kids doing this craft, then adult supervision will be required.
Those paper straws aren’t going anywhere now!
