January is just one of those months that seems to get the short straw when it comes to celebrations and decorations. We just came off three straight months of holidays while wrapping up the old year with the granddaddy of all decorative occasions — Christmas. So if you’re feeling the winter blues and your home needs a quick splash of fun, try making these cute coffee filter snowflakes to decorate your home. Literally, this must be the easiest and quickest way to make flakes, but be warned: it can be a tad bit addictive.
All you need to cut out these cuties, are some regular coffee filters (not the cone variety) and scissors. Flatten a filter and then fold it in half four times, so that you have a wedge shape with the point being at the center of the filter. Now just start cutting. It’s so much fun to experiment with different cuts and shapes to create truly original works of art, but the best part is unfolding your flake. If you want to get rid of the fold lines, heat up your iron and give it a once over. Have fun!
