Everybody seems to like them whenever they visit and they can't believe how fast and simple they are to make!
I'm sure that everybody has the materials needed for this project at home. All of them are upcycled.
This is something that you can do with children, I bet you'll have fun!
This technique is very used to create wall arts, you can create so many different shapes! You'll be able to find many if you search a little on the internet, but making up your own is so much funnier! The main "ingredient" is paper rolls! :D
Step 1: What you need
- 1 or 2 paper rolls (depending on how big it is)
- aluminium foil
- hot glue
- stick glue
- silver spray paint
Step 2: Divide the paper roll in sections
Now, starting from one side, measure 1,5cm (0.59 inches) and trace a line.
Continue to trace lines keeping the same distance until you reach the other end.
This way you have divided the roll in many thin sections.
Cut all of them using scissors.
I'm going to show you how I made my biggest snowflake, so you'll need 14 sections for this one. You may need less or more depending on the shape you want to create.
Step 3: Compose the snowflake
I placed 7 sections next to each other forming something that resembles a flower.
Use hot glue to join the pieces together on their sides.
Finally, I attached the remaining 7 pieces between the "petals" that I glued before.
Simple, isn't it? :)
