Rainbow Glitter Snowflakes

Rainbow-Glitter-smoothfoam Snowflakes-JpriestHow about making some rainbow glitter snowflakes for non-traditional home décor? I love the intricate cuts on the Smoothfoam snowflakes and wanted to use them to create a decorative accent for the holidays.

I was inspired by the bright, non-traditional holiday colors of ornaments at a local theme park and decided to embellish these Smoothfoam snowflakes in similar colors with glitter.


Here’s what you’ll need to make this project:


6″ Smoothfoam snowflakes
Glitter in various colors
Aleene’s Repositionable Tacky Spray
Paper plates
ColorBox Color Catcher  (spray booth)
Tag or scrap of paper to scoop glitter
Tombow Xtreme Mounting Putty

And here’s how easy it is to make DIY rainbow glitter snowflakes – working outside or in a well-ventilated area, just spray the top of a snowflake with the Tacky Spray, and then sprinkle away! Sprinkle one color on the outside tips, then work in a circular motion to sprinkle additional color(s) until you get to the center. Tap off the excess and let dry.

After I finished adding glitter to the snowflakes, I used the mounting putty to temporarily adhere the snowflakes to my front door as an alternative to a holiday wreath.
