DIY Craft Stick Snowflakes

By Sarah Hauge, Publisher, Macaroni Kid Englewood, Greenwood Village, Centennial, CO December 26, 2017

Bring the outside weather inside with this easy DIY snowflake craft. I liked the final results of this project so much that I actually have these snowflakes displayed in our living room all year long.

Supplies Needed:

  • Craft sticks (craft sticks, toothpicks, craft picks, twigs, etc - your choice!)
  • Glue
  • Paint
  • Embellishments (optional)


  • Glue the craft sticks together in any design you'd like. Once dry, the snowflake is ready to paint and embellish.
  • To make a true-to-form snowflake, arrange the sticks to form 6 branches.

Did you know: Snowflakes have 6 sides because they are created by molecules that are hexagonal in shape.
