Holiday Garlands and Ornaments

Fan-fold snowflakes are simple to make and fun to show. Make snowflake flowerets with showy, snowy decorations to brighten the mood of any winter holiday gathering or occasion. Use different colored paper and glue of staple your snowflake fans together to make circular garlands for hanging from the ceiling, window, tree or string from one end of the room to another.

Your pleated snowflake probably won't look exactly like their thumbnail pictures because the thumbnail pictures are computer generated guesses created with my graphics program based upon the unfolded designs.

Fan Instructions

  • Fan fold the pleats together along the dotted lines
  • Put a staple through the center of the pleated snowflake
  • * Make sure some folded edges remain connected otherwise your pattern will fall apart
  • Cut out all grey colored patterns
  • Open or fan out your snowflake and connect the straight edges with staples or tape to form a circlular ornament

Once you get the hang of this, you will soon be able to create your own designs or make variations to ours to form different snowflake fans. Experiment, mix snowflakes and garlands and string together to form a garland snowflake chain. Experiment.

Use Decorative Edge Scissors or Craft Scissors to give your snowflake fan extra flair.
