We used our favorite homemade decoupage recipe from Imperial Sugar to decorate our craft stick snowflakes.
We love working with Imperial Sugar to come up with these fun projects to teach kids that they can use simple household items to create crafts and have fun.
It's perfect for a snow day -- you don't need to run to the store to get fancy glue. Just use what you already have in your kitchen!
Craft Stick Snowflakes
- Wooden craft sticks
- Metallic white paint
- Paint brushes
- Sequins, glitter, and jewels
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1 tsp vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups water
In a medium-sized saucepan, stir together the flour, sugar, oil, and water over low heat. Cook until smooth, then remove from heat. This will be your glue!
Paint the craft sticks for a base color. We used metallic white paint so that it was shimmery and shiny, but you could use any paint that you have on hand.
Once the paint is dry, use the sugar glue to attach the sticks together into a snowflake shape. Cover the visible parts of each arm with sugar glue, then add glitter, sequins, and jewels to the snowflakes for extra flair!
We hung our snowflakes using fishing line. They look so pretty in front of the window where the sun can shine off the glitter and jewels!
