CREATE YOUR OWN FLAKES FOR A FESTIVE WALL LOOK
You will need

• Ruler and pencil
• Hot glue gun
• Testpot brush
• Testpots in Resene
Half Pohutukawa and Resene Red Herring
How to make it
1 Plan out your pattern. We used three, with two larger snowflakes and a smaller one. Mark the position of where to glue the shorter sticks to the longer sticks, then glue two of the shorter sticks onto each side at about a 45-degree angle on each side. Repeat with the two other sticks. Repeat for all six of the longer sticks too.
2 Glue each of the snowflake arms together in the centre. Two sets of sticks should line up across from each other to create three straight lines.
3 Paint the snowflakes in your chosen colour – we used Resene Half Pohutukawa and Resene Red Herring.
Once dry, arrange them on your wall, using Blu-Tack.
Note: You could also paint the sticks before you arrange them.
