Remember when you were a kid? Isn’t it that you always wished you could keep a snowflake frozen for more than 1-2 seconds? I wanted that all the time.

Luckily, now I can have them in my house with these awesome DIY snowflakes.

Let Winter Into Your Home With These DIY Snowflakes 

This year, I’m going to make an old wish of mine come true.

I always wanted to keep a snowflake alive for more that just a moment. They’re so different, complex and beautiful. They should last more just to be appreciated enough by everyone.

While DIY snowflakes can be quite hard to build, the result is outstanding. I’m pretty sure your work will be admired by your guests. After all, how many people have snowflakes inside their houses, right?

Here are 25 DIY snowflakes just perfect for a warm home interior. You’ll never believe how complex they can be and how fascinated your kids will be with them. Just take a look at these templates.

Oh, and don’t forget to let me know how it worked in the comment section  😉

    Number 5 and 24 are my favorite. We made ours out of popsicle sticks and painted them.

    Wow these are really amazing snowflakes. I might manage the tissue paper ones, but the 3D wooden ones are out of my DIY league.

    • Squirrly

      December 23, 2016 at 8:51 AM

      The 3D ones are for sure a little bit more complicated.

    The after Christmas pre-spring decorating season is always challenging to me. I want simple and stylish, but not stark. Your wreath and snowflakes are a wonderful solution, soft, sleek, and so versatile. Thanks for the great ideas!
