DIY Snowflake Hurricanes

I got my Martha on today!  We are off all week due to Thanksgiving, so I'm enjoying some free time to scratch the surfface on my craft list.

I came upon this project in the Martha Stewart 2011 Holiday Handbook. She did a beautiful winter wonderlad sceen, but I wanted something a little more simple.

Here is what you will need.

glue with a fine point
glass hurricans
templet of desired design
tape and glitter

Cut out your template and tape to the inside of the glass.

Next trace with gule and sprinke on the glitter liberally.

Move the templet around and make as many snowflakes as you would like. I did three, but you could go the whole way around.

Continue on with the others. After all three are done, they will need to sit and dry for a few hours.

As you can see there are a few spots where the glue lines were not so clean. Here is a tip: If you let it dry all the way you can just use an x-acto knife or a sharp thin edge to gently clean it up.

Dust off the remaing glitter and your done. I LOVE the way they came out!
