Dollar Tree Snowflake Door Hanging

I have a favorite party I love to visit every Christmas and it is Debbie Doos All Things Dollar Tree Christmas Party.  She will host this party on this Saturday December 6th.  She is a master at coming up with really great thrifty ideas and her Christmas party is perfect for those looking to do something new for Christmas that won't cost you a whole lot of money. My idea this year was to create something new for the front door.  

I went to the Dollar Tree and got these acrylic snowflake ornaments.  I paid $1 for each large snowflake and $1 for the box of smaller snowflake ornaments.  I had the rest of the materials so this door decoration cost me $3.


(I found the snowflakes in 2 sizes, so I used each)
Gold Spray Paint
Glitter (of your choice)
Hot glue gun
Floral wire

Take the snowflakes outside or somewhere with good air circulation and spray paint them the desired color.  Let dry.  You could apply glitter with the spray paint.  I added the glitter to a few areas on the bigger snowflakes with school glue.  Let that dry. To assemble, just arrange your snowflakes on a newspaper in a fashion that you think will be balanced and hang even. Hot glue this in place.  Let that dry.  Fashion a ribbon for the top and wire that on then hang your creation.  

Jalinda at The Craft in Me created these Snowflakes on her front door and I loved the "Frozen" colors she used.  She stuck her snowflakes right to the door.

I wanted to create a door hanging so I didn't have to use anything right on the door.  I tried to tone down the glitter usage but, I have already heard it about the glitter that is on the floor. I LOVE glitter.  Do you have a craft habit that annoys anyone in your house?  That is the price I pay for being in a house of all guys!  Go over and visit Debbie at Debbie Doos and see what other crafty ideas people are coming up with from the Dollar Stores.

I love your snow flake Idea. Come visit my blog and look at my Christmas decorations and crafts. I used those snowflakes in a different way. I love your idea.

What a cute idea! I just bought some of those today at Dollar Tree. My plan is to dangle them on the back porch. Now, I want to go back and get more; and use them on the door! Lol!

I love that blue Christmas you featured, Sherry! I'm a little "Frozen-ed" out and would probably opt for your gold flakes, but the blue does pop!
