I have had it on my “list” for us to make these yarn wrapped snowflake ornaments for the last two years, ever since I first found these Woodsies skill sticks. We have made other snowflake ornaments before, but these are very different from our puffy snowflakes.
In addition to being a cute ornament, wrapping the yarn around the craft sticks is also great fine motor practice!
Here’s what you’ll need: Woodsies Skill Sticks, white yarn, white paint, a paintbrush, ribbon, and a hot glue gun (not pictured).
1. Paint the craft sticks with white acrylic paint.
2. Let dry.
3. Have an adult use the hot glue gun and glue the craft sticks together. You could do 3 or 4 sticks in a snowflake pattern.
4. Tie the white yarn onto one of the notches and then encourage your child to wrap the yarn around the craft sticks.
It works best if you start on the inside and work your way out.
5. Attach a ribbon to the top to hang.
