DIY snowflakes

Happy December everyone! 
I just love this time of year. Now all we need is some December weather. It is beautiful outside but it just doesn't feel right putting out Christmas lights in a tank top and shorts.
I saw these super snowflakes on MADE last year and loved them. I decided to make some of my own this year and I love how they turned out!

I'm sure there is an easier way to go about this and you could even hand draw it if you are artsy like that.  I just blew up a snow flake image huge on my computer and then held a piece of paper up to the screen and traced a little and then scooted it over until I had the whole thing. I had to tape together 4 pieces of paper.

Then I traced it onto a piece of cardboard and cut it out. Sprayed some adhesive glue and sprinkled them with clear glitter.
I hung them by clear fishing line. I also taped some fishing line to the backs of them so they would all be connected. That helped them not spin around and stay facing forward.
