    To start this craft you want to paint your craft sticks with white paint. Any type of paint will work. I’ve found that acrylic paint tends to dry faster than tempera paint but the both work well.

    Next, glue your snowflake together by putting a bit of glue in the center on one craft stick and then layer another craft stick across the top to make an “X” shape. Repeat the process of overlapping craft sticks until you have your snowflake. We used hot glue because it dries in a matter of seconds but white glue works too. If you use white glue make sure you give it time to dry.
