Sparkling Snowflake

by Clubhouse Jr. Staff


3 popsicle sticks
tacky glue
25 to 30 pearl white buttons
gold thread


1. Lay one stick down vertically. Glue two popsicle sticks together in the shape of an "X" and glue them on top of other stick.
2. Cut a piece of gold thread about 6 inches long and thread it through one of the buttons. Glue that button to the top of the horizontal popsicle stick, allowing it to pop over the end just a little.
3. Continue gluing buttons until your snowflake is covered. Allow it to dry completely before hanging.
4. Watch how your shimmering snowflake reflects the lights on your tree.
