How's the weather where you are?? Around here it is snow, snow, and even more snow! This winter trend inspired me to bring you a little snowflake inspiration... they might be cold, and a pain to deal with for months on end, but they sure are beautiful!
I used one of my favorite collections ever on this: Timbergrove! The colors are perfection and the patterns are just great for the textures of winter. So, instead of getting a case of the winter blues, I decided to embrace the snow and create this hanging snowflake decor.
I cut a doily base from the silver glitter cardstock because, well, silver glitter just screams snowflakes! I then added a white corrugated circle for texture. The large die-cut snowflakes create a base for all the other elements.
I created a title base from layered paper and a small patterned bag with a tag stuck in it. I love the combination of the silver foil die-cut word with the large coordinating alpha stickers.
I added a cluster for balance at the top of the main embellishment area. I use these mini clothespins whenever I get a chance! I used one here to clip together a grouping of embellishments and tags.
Of course this piece wouldn't be complete without a little flurry of flakes hanging from the bottom. I cut doubles of each snowflake from various patterns and sandwiched them around twine to hang from the bottom.
This home decor is a fun alternative to a wreath and, with the addition of a ribbon hanger, can be displayed anywhere. Sometimes it is nice to have something to celebrate the season beyond a specific holiday.
Thanks for stopping by today!
