How to make giant paper snowflakes that you’ve seen all over Pinterest! I’m sharing this idea early as one of my Sunday Favorites along with favorites from Mary Ann and Cindy.
The giant paper snowflakes are so easy to make using nothing but paper lunch bags, a glue gun and a good pair of scissors. You can make smaller snowflakes using small kraft paper bags or use white lunch bags too! Today I’m showing you the simple steps with a short video.
The Supplies you’ll need to make giant paper snowflakes
- Eight Paper lunch bags/sacks
- a mini hot glue gun and several glue sticks
- a good pair of scissors
- Something to hang the snowflakes
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…8
- Take 8 paper bags (Less than 8 and you won’t have enough to fan the bags out in a circle, any more than 8 and it’s hard to cut through that many layers).
- Stack them flap side up
- Take a hot glue gun and make a T down the front of the bag with the flap
- Stack the next bag on top, smoothing it out so that the glue fastens the bags together
- Repeat until you’ve glued all 8 bags together
- Then using a good scissors, cut out half circles, triangles, cut the corners on each side symmetrically creating a pattern
- Take hold of the first and last paper bag and open it in a circular motion fanning the bags open to create your one of a kind giant paper snowflake.
- See the video below if the above doesn’t make sense!

We love Garnet Hill
Every bed in our home is made up of layers of Garnet Hill bedding, so when Patrick moved to NYC, of course, I turned to Garnet Hill when it came to choosing bedding for his new apartment.
A photo that he took at our favorite vacation spot, Biarritz, was what inspired our choices. The blue sky and the warm sand were the colors we looked for in bedding and it didn’t take long to find the perfect sheets, blanket, quilt, and shams.
Here’s what we chose: The Blissful Silk Quilt and Shams in Hazelnut, Gauzy Stripe Blanket, and Lumbar Pillow in Soft Blue, Embroidered Wrinkle-Resistant Sateen Bedding in BlueStone and Hemp Chambray Bedding in Hazelnut.
I tried to convince him of these floral pillowcases, but no luck, so Madeline was happy to take them! They are the Windsor Relaxed Organic Cotton Sateen and they are so soft!
I love these planters from Terrain, but I saw that Brooke used these from Walmart with some chalk spray paint and for the price, I had to get a set! I used the large one to hold our garden hose. I removed the plug so that it drains into the pea gravel and the smaller planter, I used for a mini evergreen. We also used them on this project last summer!
Family Gift Guide Ideas
We had the chance to use a Solo Stove at our Cabin Stay at The Lost Kitchen in Maine a few weeks ago and we loved it! This holiday gift guide was inspired by our trip to Maine! The enamel mugs, cozy throws, and a fire pit would make a wonderful family or couples gift.
