Painting Snowflakes with a Homemade Straw Stamp
I am not a huge fan of winter, but I just love winter-themed crafts! I made my son a homemade snowflake stamp from a straw…. so simple to make!
All you have to do is cut slits up one end of the straw and bend them upwards. I placed white paint mixed with silver glitter on a plate & my little guy stamped away.
He stamped each snowflake 1-4 times, slightly turning it each time he pressed it down.
He also added winter-themed foam stickers.
This would also be fun to do as a fireworks craft for the 4th of July!
Inspiration for this art project came from a painting with straws post I saw over at Putti Prapancha. They made flower & stars from their straw stamp!
