Wax Resist Window Snowflakes

Wax resist is always a fun activity. It’s almost like a little bit of magic.

What you need:

Black cardstock (you could also use construction paper, but cardstock gives a bit more structure)

White paper

White Crayons

Paints

Glue

Scissors

Glitter

Step 1:

Using a white crayon, draw snowflakes onto the white paper. Keep in mind that you will cut across the middle  of the paper approximately one inch wide.

Step 2:

Paint over the snowflakes using the colours of your choice. We chose purple and blue.

Step 3:

Cut out a strip along the paper into 4 equal pieces and trim around to cut off excess white paper, making them equal.

Step 4:

Glue the snowflakes onto the black cardstock to make a window pane.

Step 5:

Using a piece of white paper, cut a strip lengthwise about 2.5- 3 inches wide. Then make an accordion fold.

Step 6:

Cut out small triangles along the edges of the folded paper in any pattern you wish. 

Step 7:

Unfold and glue each edge to the top of your window frame. Lastly, glue along the snowflake lines and shake on some glitter.
