Hello dear readers

I want to devote today's short post to how to decorate your home with New Year's motives and do it yourself. Yes, yes, on the threshold of the New Year! Are you ready to meet him yet? Didn't you dress up the Christmas tree, didn't hang the garlands, and Grandpa Frost and the Snow Maiden are still gathering dust in a box on the highest shelf? I advise you to hurry up! All these attributes will invariably cheer you up and the feeling of a holiday will not keep you waiting long.

What you need to work

Remember how in childhood they glued garlands and chains made of multi-colored paper, thin threads of rain with the help of cotton wool were sculpted on the whitewashed ceiling and walls pasted with wallpaper so that later stains remained. And the poor parents even turned a blind eye to this, the main thing is to create a holiday atmosphere and good mood for their child.

And what kind of carved paper snowflakes were cut out with their own hands in kindergarten and at home. It is about them that are beautiful and airy in my article. Let's remember how this is done, call your children and do this exciting activity with the whole family.

In order to make snowflakes out of paper with our own hands, we need paper, scissors and a pencil (pen or felt-tip pen). By the way, paper can be of completely different colors. And you can experiment with the size of the snowflakes. It all depends on where you plan to place them.

Step-by-step instructions for creating a snowflake

so

1. Take a regular A4 sheet of paper and cut a square out of it.

2. Fold it diagonally and get a triangle.

3. Then fold the resulting triangle in half again.

4. Then we visually divide the triangle into three parts, i.e. two fold lines are obtained. We bend one side to the center and overlap the other from above.

5. Cut off the excess paper obliquely parallel to the top edge.

Our snowflake blank is ready. The rest is up to your imagination. Draw a pattern on the resulting triangle, which we then cut out. For example, I suggest snowflake schemes. If you use them, great! So you liked them. Snowflake patterns are simple to design and you can easily cope with them. But be sure to get creative and draw your diagrams. It is very interesting!

Ready-made snowflakes can be used to decorate a street window by gluing them to glass. It is better to stick to soapy water or toothpaste. Such contamination can then be easily washed off with plain water and a cloth. Or string them on a thread by threading it through the holes in the patterns. It is quite possible to decorate any room or a Christmas tree with such a garland, if the snowflakes of the snowflakes are made small.

Decorating a room with a snowflake

Meanwhile, our snowflake schemes can be used as blanks for another version of the New Year's decoration. To do this, we need the snowflake itself, water, old toothpaste and white gouache. Then we do this:

1. Glue the wet snowflake on a glass or mirror, straighten it so that nothing bends. Remove excess moisture and drips with a dry cloth.

2. Dilute a little white gouache in a little water. You can use color, but with white it turns out like real snowflakes.

3. We dip the toothbrush in gouache and, removing excess water from it, gently spray our snowflake. When the gouache is dry, remove the snowflake.

Here is such a seemingly not tricky way, but a very stylish Christmas decoration is obtained. Moreover, using this technique, you can decorate anything. For example, a bottle of champagne. Such a bottle will become a worthy decoration of the New Year's table. And giving champagne decorated in this way is also nice.
