First, glue six popsicle sticks together in the shape of a hexagon. Once the shape has dried, attach six additional sticks from each inside corner of the frame and connect them in the center. Glue more sticks to the outer edges of the snow flake. Add as many as you like to create an original design. Allow ample time in between each addition of popsicle sticks for the project to dry.
Next, once the entire shape has dried, paint the snow flake a wintery color such as white, red or blue. For more festive are, coat the snow flake in a thin layer of glue and sprinkle it in glitter. Let the glitter settle, and then carefully shake off the excess.
Lastly, tie ribbon or string to your shape to hang up the snow flake, fashioning the perfect D.I.Y winter décor.
