How To Make a Torn Paper Snowflake

This craft is super fun and easy to make! Here’s how.

Step 1: Prepare Your Materials

First, gather all your materials. Make sure you have different shades of blue paper to give depth and character to your snowflake.

Step 2: Tear and Create

This is where the fun begins! Tear your blue paper into small pieces. Don’t worry about making them uniform; the uniqueness of each piece adds to the charm of your snowflake.

Step 3: Glue onto the Template

Take your snowflake template and start gluing the torn pieces of paper onto it. Fill in the template completely, and feel free to overlap pieces for a textured look.

Step 4: Add Personality

Once your snowflake is filled in, cut out a small smile from the black cardstock and glue it onto your snowflake. Then, add the googly eyes. If you like, you can also add eyelashes for a more whimsical touch.

Creative Variations of Torn Paper Snowflake

Once you’ve mastered the basic design, you can get creative with your Snowflake Art:

  • Color Variations: Instead of just blue shades, experiment with a rainbow of colors or use a monochromatic scheme like different shades of purple or pink. This can reflect different moods or personal preferences.
  • Pattern Play: Instead of random placement, arrange the torn pieces in specific patterns or gradients. This can be a fun way to teach about symmetry and design.
  • Personality: Add silly google eyes, different smiles, cheeks and other elements to give your snowflakes various personalities.
