a snowflake table runner is my fave

Today’s snowy post was created by Bar Rucci.

There are two things we are obsessed with making at our house: pom-poms and snowflakes. I love snowflake making!! It’s the best because you never know what you’re going to get, and everyone oohs and aahs when you open up your snowflake. It’s completely addicting!


I think there are probably as many ways to make snowflakes as there are to make pop-poms. But this is how we make ours:

Take an 8.5” x 11” piece of paper and fold it over into a triangle. Trim off the part that is leftover so now you have a perfect square. Fold that triangle in half again, then one more time. Cut off the bottom and the point, making some sort of pattern. Now cut the inside with little notches of whatever shape and size you want. Open it up, and voila! An amazing, symmetrical snowflake!

To make the runner, I arranged the snowflakes on the table and then used little pieces of scotch tape to tape the edges together. It’s such a festive, wintery and inviting table…you can use it for a party, Christmas morning, or any time during the winter months for a little cheer.

Happy snowflake making!
