How to Make a Snowflake Curtain

Deck the windows with strands of snowflakes. They're inexpensive, easy to make and add the perfect dose of seasonal flair to even the smallest windows.

Materials Needed:

  • several sheets of plain white copy paper
  • computer and printer
  • one heavy book
  • scissors
  • 8 lb. fishing line
  • transparent tape

Print Snowflakes

Search the Internet for free snowflake templates, and print out several different sizes.

Cut Snowflakes

Use scissors to cut around the outside border of each snowflake.

Fold Snowflakes

Fold each snowflake along the specified lines.

Cut Snowflakes

Use scissors to cut out the shaded parts of each snowflake.

Flatten Snowflakes

Place each of the snowflakes between various pages of a very heavy book to flatten out all of the folds.

Attach Snowflakes

Use small pieces of transparent tape to attach each of the snowflakes, at various heights, to several lengths of 8 lb. fishing line. Helpful hint: Measure the distance between the inside top of the window frame and the inside bottom of the window frame to determine the correct length of fishing line.
