My Kitchen Window - Paper Snowflake Decor Part II

We talked about how I change up my kitchen window,seasonally, when I shared my natural fall decor last month. Now, it's time to show off our winter change that is equally inexpensive but packs a colorful punch!

Who said snowflakes had to be white?

You can see my new Ikea bottles standing in until my Limoncello is ready. Spray paint some dead twigs white and use some colorful scrapbook papers to make fun and colorful snowflakes. Hang on the branches for a fun display!






We had a fun linky party last week, and I wanted to share a few of my faves.

Shelly, from Surviving Munchkinland showed us how to make the cool hand stamped washer necklaces I've seen everywhere!



Sam's Mom knows I have a soft spot for a cozy scarf, and taught us how to make this no-sew version:



And finally, Mama Thompson worked out a glass block nativity that just GLOWS!



My next linky party is scheduled for next Thursday, December 17th! My soul sisters and I have planned our Christmas party the day before and we've decided to give hand made Christmas ornaments as gifts to each other this year! Oh, I can't wait to show you we all come up with and I want to invite you to show us YOURS! So, link up next week with your own Christmas ornament ideas right here!

  4. I just LOVE your snowflakes! I have to admit though I can't even come close to making mine look like yours! Any chance you would post some pictures of how you fold your paper or make those beautiful cuts? My kids loved your hanging display of all of them!
