My family has a tradition of making DIY ornaments, and I had the idea to make a snowflake out of hot glue and wax/parchment paper. This is quite a simple project with a cool outcome. I hope you enjoy this project, have fun!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Foundation
To make the foundation just make one big glob of hot glue. My 1st-grade art teacher used to always say "No glob monsters" when we used glue. But this doesn't apply to us, so feel free to make as big of a glob monster as you feel like. Just not too big!
Step 2: Add Arms for Support
I added arms to mine for form and support. But feel free to go with another design
Step 3: Start Adding Some Design
Start on the inside of the snowflake anything will work but I made a circle.
Step 4: Add Some More Design
Now you can start to add design closer towards the outer edges but DO NOT put any things on the ends of the line.
Step 5: Final Design and Loop
So now you can put a design on the end I recommend a circle because other shapes are hard to form. to do this make the first one not filled in in the middle then you can make the rest filled in.
Step 6: You Are Almost Finished!
Now is the time to take a break go to the bathroom, eat a snack. but don't forget to unplug your glue gun.
Step 7: Add the String/Twine/Cord/Yarn/Thread
Add the string to the loop.
Step 8: You´re Finished
Enjoy your hot glue snowflake ornament!
