12 Days of Christmas - Day 8 with Wendy

Hello there, Doodlebug friends!  It’s Wendy Sue here today – sharing a fun little holiday project.  I created this fun glittery snowflake garland using lots of colorful doodlebug supplies.  It was quick and easy – and would have been a great project to do with the kids!

I started by cutting out the snowflake shapes (from white cardstock) with my Silhouette Cameo, but if you don’t have one you could certainly cut them out by hand.  Next, I applied liquid glue with a sponge brush, then sprinkled sugar coating glitter to cover each snowflake.  After each snowflake was dry, I flipped it over and did the back (this step is optional and I probably didn’t need to do it since the back is against the door – but if you were putting it in a window or some other spot where the back was visible, you’d definitely want to cover the back.)

After the glue was dried and the glitter was all cleaned up (I know, who am I kidding…glitter is never completely cleaned up!), I started embellishing the centers of some of my flakes.  Some of them have sweet little snowflake braddies added.  Other have slightly larger, and oh so fun, doodle-pops in the center.

After the embellishments were added, I glued them all to a long piece of doodle twine with a hot glue gun.

…and hung the finished garland on the door.  Now I’m loving how it looks as we add holiday cards to the door, one by one.

One of my favorite things about this banner is that it will remain on this door throughout January, since it’s not necessarily a “holiday"/christmas” ornament – but a colorful WINTER decoration instead!!
Hope your winter is full of glitter and bright colors too!
Supplies:  cardstock: lily white; sugar coated glitter (metallic assortment & glitter assortment); boutique brads (holiday assortment); braddies (frosty flakes); doodle-pops (snowman, mr. penguin, snowflake)
