CRAFT

CRE­ATE YOUR OWN FLAKES FOR A FES­TIVE WALL LOOK

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - THIS WEEK IN... -

You will need

• Craft ice­block sticks in two lengths − 6 longer craft sticks and 24 of a shorter length

• 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.
