"Grow Your Own Borax Crystal Snowflake"

Best Ever Six-Sided Snowflake

Sparkle Snow Paint

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup water
Mix together and put in a squeeze bottle. Squeeze doughy paint out on to black construction paper. Make anything snowy, snowflakes, snowmen, - we made snow covered mountains with the moon and northern lights. Let dry thoroughly and it will sparkle. May also be painted (when dry) and allowed to dry again. This is a great 3 dimensional effect for snow.

A "Self-sticking" Snowflake

  Here is what you will need: 
  • a snowflake pattern (you can get ideas from The Snow Page)
  • dimensional fabric paint (the kind that squeezes out of a bottle)
  • ziplock baggie
  • glitter

The great thing about these snowflakes is that they stick to any shiny surface like a refrigerator or glass window. Put the snowflake pattern in the plastic baggie and zip closed. On the outside of the baggie trace over the snowflake pattern with the fabric paint. My mom makes me wear old clothes or a craft apron to do this part because it's easy to get some paint on your clothes. While the snowflake is still wet sprinkle glitter over the paint. Carefully shake off any excess glitter. Let dry. When completely dry peel off the baggy and put it up somewhere where every one can see it!
