This year, instead of splashing out on wasteful expensive decorations this year, why not have a go at crafting some homemade Christmas decorations?
Through this year’s Preloved advent calendar, we’ll be sharing some quick and easy crafts you can have a crack at this year. Plus, they’ll all be using recycled materials to help you reduce your waste double-time this Christmas!
we’ve got this super cute and easy snowflake!
What you’ll need:
- 3 lollies per snowflake
- Buttons (white/pale blue shades)
- Small string to make a hook to hang on the tree
- Glue gun
- White Paint
Firstly, take your three lolly sticks and paint them white. Wait for them to dry and then glue together in the center spaced out to create your snowflake shape.
Glue your white and blue buttons along the sticks to create a snow effect.
Glue string to one of the ends to create a loop to be hung on the tree.
Alternatively, you could remove the string and glue on to your presents to decorate
And you’re done, your very own snowflake! Why not make a variety of designs and put together a little display? Quick and easy, and a great way of getting rid of some leftover waste at home!
