DIY Paddlepop Snowflakes

Make your walls extra joyful this Christmas season with some homemade wall art! This one’s all about the creativity and getting the kids involved in some festive fun with DIY Paddlepop Snowflakes!

This DIY is a great Christmas activity that gets the kids involved. It requires minimal craft materials (you don’t need to break the bank!) and is super easy.

Paddlepop snowflakes are lightweight and can be created as big or as small as you like! So they’re perfect for adding a festive touch to any wall or door space.

Remember, no two snowflakes are the same 😉 Get creative and switch up the points of your rows or create your arrows using different sized paddlepops. It’s all part of the fun! Just click play on the clip or follow the guide below!

What you need:

  • Paddlepops
  • Glue gun/glue
  • Spray paint (colour of your choice)/paint

What to do:

  1. Map out your wall with how many snowflakes you want to fit. Plan for bigger and smaller snowflakes for a scattered look.
  2. Fan out the three rows so that they are pointed at 10, 12 and 2 o’clock points. We used six paddlepops to create our rows.
  3. Glue the ends of the three rows of paddlepops .The longer your rows, the bigger your snowflake will be!
  4. Midway between each row, place two paddlepops in an outward arrow and glue together.
  5. At the top of each row, place two paddlepops in an inward arrow and glue together.
  6. Once your snowflake is dry place it on a covered surface and spray paint from a safe 20cm distance to prevent blotting. Alternatively, get the kids to use their paintbrush! Leave to dry.
  7. Hang on your wall!
