Snowflake 1 ❄️
Start off with three sets of 2 popsicle sticks glued together in a line
Make an asterisk and glue the centers of each piece together.
I'm so sorry it's blurry! I didn't realize when I took the picture! Glue sticks to each tip of the asterisk at an angle to form a diamond. (this step takes 12 sticks)
Now make six "chicken feet" using 4 sticks for each one. This is done by making six pieces that look like step 1 and then gluing one on either side at an angle
Back of "chicken foot"
Front of "chicken foot"
In between the upper tips of each diamond glue one "chicken foot" down.

Ready for painting!
Painted with two coats of paint. Make sure you get into all the little crevasses! I also painted the backs of them.
Paint some glitter on it if you want. Then paint on a top coat. This one has a flat top coat
Snowflake 2 ❄️
Make a hexagon using six sticks. Glue down each end.
Make and attach an asterisk (see steps 1 & 2) and glue the hexagon to the top.
Now make six crosses
Glue down the crosses to the corners of the hexagon
Shimmered with a thin coat of glitter acrylic paint
Shiny top coat
Hang using ribbon or place on a surface.
Thanks for taking a look! 😃
