Instructables
Picture of Paper Roll Snowflakes
I made these snowflakes last year to decorate the walls of the entrance during Christmas time...they ended up staying attached to the wall during the whole year and they are still there! :D
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)
  • cardstock
  • aluminium foil
  • hot glue
  • stick glue
  • silver spray paint

Step 2: Divide the paper roll in sections

First of all you have to flatten your paper roll(s) a little.
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

Now that you have all the pieces ready, you can start playing with them composing the shape you like!

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? :)

That is a whole lot easier than it looks. Where did you get this idea?

lindarose92 (author)  knitwitcharm6 months ago

I saw wall arts made with paper rolls everywhere on the internet and decided to make mine too using aluminium foil as base instead of nothing, I thought it would give a cooler look to the snowflake :)

It certainly did.
