Heres a quick Christmas craft that is easy to do and pretty effective!
Glue Gun Snowflakes
Christmas is a perfect opportunity to try out some new crafts and create some decorations for the home. So why not give these glue gun snowflakes a go this year. I was super surprised at how effective they were in the end, and you wouldn’t be able to tell from afar that they were made from glue on the tree!
As you can see I didn’t just make snowflakes, I did stars and a Christmas tree too. The ideas are endless!
Free Printable Templates
Below you will find some templates for you to create your shapes. These are printed off on A4 paper and create a good size.
Once these are printed off you’re ready to heat up your glue gun. Then place some greaseproof paper over the templates and trace over them with the glue. Make sure you put on a thick amount of glue to create a good thickness of your shape.
You will notice the little yellow straw…….DO NOT DO THIS! I melted the straw into the glue gun snowflake!!!!!! I thought I could then create a hole to hang the string through, well it just melted the straw into the snowflake instead and won’t come out!
Instead just thread a needle and thread through the glue gun snowflake once it’s cooled!
Leave to dry and that’s it, you have your glue gun decorations.
I have placed them on the tree to show you, but be aware of heat on them. You could hang these on a garland in the home. Or create lots of them and hang them in the window to make a display.
