Make A Snowstorm Inside This Year!

Click on pictures to be taken to tutorial.

A guestroom plays host to a man-made snowstorm. The improbability of finding a flurry of white paper dots floating above his or her bed will charm and delight any visitor.

Say goodbye to hand-cut snowflakes taped to windows. Instead, try a curtain of whimsical flakes hung on strands of dental floss.

Hung like beaded curtains in front of windows, these snowflakes make a subtle, modern, and whimsical addition to any seasonal room d├ęcor.
