Begin painting the sticks a color or colors of your choice. You do not need to paint both sides if you don’t wish, just the main side will do. Allow the paint to dry well before the next step.
Proceed by laying the craft sticks on top of each other to create a cross shape. Glue in place and allow to dry.
Continue adding on additional sticks, gluing them into a star shape as you go. You will need to use about 3-5 sticks to get the flared design. Just glue, press, hold, and wait.
You can now add some sparkle! Use glue and glitter to embellish the snowflakes as you wish. You can also glue on pom poms, beads, string, or any other pieces you wish. Allow to dry.
When your snowflake is all decorated, you can add some string or yarn for hanging or just display them as is. They look especially cute when grouped together in bundles!
