    GIANT snowflakes I made

    I made these frm popcicle sticks for my front porch...thanks to hubby they got painted!
    I have to fix the garland at the bottm of the door and even it out but over all I thnk it looks neat and they look really nice when it is dark and the lights are on, on the rails and the spotlights out front

    You did a great job decorating. Love the snowflakes, I have tons of popsicle sticks I saved years ago, don't want to take time away from quilt making to use them.

    Sue, those are really neat! Love how they're all different too! Did you use hot glue to hold them together and are they painted white or is there a sparkle to them as well? This is a wonderful craft that I'm interested in duplicating!
    Go forth and sew!

    I love your snowflakes as well, but was wondering how they will hold up in the cold, snow and wind....funny, your front porch is very similar to mine, so just may copy your idea!!!

    I used popcicle sticks.... 1000 for $5.50 at michaels. High temp hot glue gun and spray painted them. I am in nc so it gets cold but should be ok

    They look great.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Very nice! I collect snowman ornaments and my daughter just brought me one that the grandson had placed in the freezer to keep it cold. Needless to say it is breaking up. filled it full of water and needless to say it was blown glass.- My poor ornament. I have some very unique ones. Oh well kids will be kids.

    I love, love, love these and have been trying to find something nice to put at the front of the house. I'm worried about the wind, rain/sleet/snow. I'm trying to think of a way to put them in the windows on the inside, but still have them lit up to look nice from the street. Any ideas anyone??

    We bought many strands of multi-color outdoor bulbs last year for our two holly trees. It looked so pretty, but before the season was over half of the strands were burnt out and we couldn't fix them. We were so disappointed after putting all that time, effort, and money into them. I can't seem to find any higher quality outdoor lights. Do you have a good source? All I'm finding are the same brand again, and I won't waste the time trying that again. I bought them at Lowes.

    I love your snow flakes. Your house looks so nice. I have a snow man in the house which I bought at a craft fair and some one hand embroidary on it "Some of my best friends are Flakes". HE HE

    Those are so pretty!!! I wish I had a front porch... Florida or no, I'd hang snowflakes! Your house looks so welcoming.
