Decorating with Snowflakes

I’m originally from Michigan, so winters with tons of snow and winter fun make up some of my favorite childhood memories!

Seeing the snow sparkle in the moonlight, building igloos, sledding, cross country skiing, snowmen, soaking wet knitted mittens made by my great-grandma…these are my childhood Michigan memories!

(Speaking of mittens, we have a great tutorial below with instructions to knit up some beautiful snowflake mittens!)

There is not nearly as much snow where I live now, and the real stuff is not quite as fun when you are an adult who has to shovel and drive in it! 

So now I go crazy with snowflake decorations! 

Snowflake decorations aren’t just for kids!  We have found new, unique, and wonderful DIY snowflake decorations for you to make and enjoy this winter season.

I like decorating with snowflakes because they can stay up for several months and are seasonal as opposed to related to holidays. 

My Christmas decorations come down at the first of January, but I can keep my home decorated with snowflakes long after the Christmas things are all boxed up and put away.

The snowflake crafts that you will find on this page are sure to delight you!  Both making them and decorating with them are so fun and festive!

Tons of Snowflake Fun!

We have so many snowflake crafts on this page that I will give you just a quick peek to get you inspired, then be sure to scroll down and take a look at all there is to see!

Paper Snowflake Decorations and Crafts

These are not your typical cut-out paper snowflake decorations here!  

Many of these DIY snowflake decoration tutorials have patterns and directions to make unique and intricate paper snowflakes using different types of papers like copy paper, newspaper, brown paper bags, tissue paper, coffee filters, wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, and freezer paper!

The different papers give you a wide variety of snowflake decorations; newspapers make great origami snowflakes to paint, brown paper snowflakes will fit in nicely with your farmhouse decor, coffee filters give you ease of cutting…

You get the idea!

Besides the usual cut-out snowflakes, there are tutorials on paper quilled snowflake decorations, snowflake decorations made from paper strips curled around a pencil, 3D paper medallion snowflakes, and so much more! 

You’ll be surprised at the lovely snowflake decorations that you can make with toilet paper rolls!
