This Cricut made snowflake garland is completely adorable.
It is one of those projects that started out with a plan that quickly changed once in process. When I originally cut the snowflakes out of the Oly*Fun using my Cricut Maker, I was planning to use them to create handmade cards. However, once they were cut and scattered on my work table (next to some jar lids) I looked at them and saw a snowflake garland in my mind. So, I created a Cricut Made Snowflake Garland to share. This is a great project to create that festive winter theme no matter where you might live. This post is sponsored by Fairfield World but the ideas and opinions are my own.
To make the snowflake garland, you will need the following materials and supplies.
- Oly*Fun (white) from Fairfield World
- Cricut Maker
- Cricut Fabric Mat
- Jar Lids
- White yarn, string or ribbon
The directions to make the snowflake garland are easy ones so great for beginners.
Start by cutting the white Oly*Fun into snowflakes on your Cricut Maker. There are lots of snowflakes to choose from in the Cricut Design Space. I recommend choosing one that is less intricate for several reasons. First of all, it will cut faster. Second, it will make a bolder statement.
Tie a piece of string, ribbon or yarn to each lid leaving between 6 and 10 inches of extra length.
Glue a snowflake to BOTH sides of each jar lid. Let the glue dry.
Using the extra lengths of string the lids, tie each one to a long (however long you want) piece of ribbon to create a garland. The more snowflakes you tie, the more it will feel like you are inside of a snow globe. The snowflake garland can be super long or short enough to fit on a bulletin board. It is super flexible.
I love this project because you can make the snowflakes ANY size with the Cricut Maker. If you wanted to create a tiny garland to go around a jar, you could. If you want to create larger snowflakes, you can make those too! I cut out a much of tiny snowflakes to see how they would work as a confetti to go inside holiday cards and LOVE them. These measure one inch in diameter. Now I bet you are hoping you are on my Christmas card list.
Wouldn’t these be so fun for a Frozen party? I am pretty sure another one is coming out soon. 🙂 If you love making things with Oly*Fun because it works like paper but acts like fabric, you might like this holiday idea too. Easy sew gift bags are great to reuse year after year with makes them eco-friendly.
Cheers to the Holiday, Snowflakes and Decorating!
