Q-Tips Crafts

I am glad the temperatures are going down a bit. It is still not comfortable enough to go outside and do some outdoor stuff, at least not yet at our place under the sun. That hike through the woods and/or combing the beach for all the treasures nature has to offer will have to wait another few weeks or so.

We are desperately longing for some cold weather and that is probably why these Q-tips snowflakes are so appealing to me.

These are rather easy to make. You will need a pair of scissors, craft glue, construction paper, and a handful of cotton swabs.

Simply cut the Q-tips to the desired length and glue them onto the paper. A little imagination goes a long way and when you create the same pattern on both sides and cut it out you will end up with a one of a kind Christmas decoration.

Another cute idea is embellishing the decorations with glitter.

You can dip the ends of the cotton swabs in it as shown in this example, but I think it would also look cool when you sprinkle it on the paper before you glue the snowflake on.

My choice for doing that would be double-stick paper. This is easily cut in any desired shape and size, requires no drying time, and creates less of a mess.

You don't have to, of course. You can use spray glue or a glue stick for that as well. See what you like best and are most comfortable with.

Yours truly just gave you another tip!
