Do you have any idea how easy it is to make Christmas snowflakes? There are several ways to make paper snowflakes for Christmas decorations, and there a ton of wonderful things that you can do with them. So let’s learn how to make your basic snowflake and learn some simple techniques to make the most beautiful decorations for Christmas. Once you get the hang of cutting and folding your paper, it is so easy to make your snowflakes that you will want to show your whole family and even your friends.

All of the snowflakes start out with the same basic fold, and it can be a little complicated at first but once you get the hang of it, you’re golden.

  1. The first step is to find a square sheet of paper. Yes, it must be square.
  2. Next, You fold it in half diagonally so that it forms a triangle, and then fold it in half again so that you have a smaller, four part triangle.
  3. Once you have that, you want to make another fold, but this one is a bit tricky. The corners will overlap after this fold so don’t worry about the paper being caught up in the middle. You would take the left corner and fold it over to the right at an angle, so that you form about a forty-five degree angle with the two triangle points.
  4. Then take the right point of the triangle and fold it over to the left so that the whole looks like a triangle with feet.
  5. When you have that done, cut about a quarter inch above the feet and you have the basis of your snowflake.

Once you have the base of your snowflake, here begins the fun! The next step is to take your scissors and cut out shapes around the edges. They can be triangles, squares, or anything else. If you want to have a Christmas snowflake with a hole in the middle, cut the tip off with a clean snip. If you don’t want a hole in the middle, leave it on there. Since no two snowflakes are the same, use your imagination on what you want it to look like and make any kind of cut notches that you want. Once you’ve done that, unfold and open your paper carefully and voila! You’ve got your very own paper snowflake.


Making snowflakes out of paper for Christmas is one of the most fun projects there is. It’s simple and easy to learn, as well as fun for youth, children and the whole family. When you run out of ideas for decorations, making these snowflakes is an awesome way to compensate as well. A great idea is to take Christmas wrapping paper and make the snowflakes out of it instead of plain white paper. When you are ready to get folding, remember that patience is the answer when you are making these snowflakes and practice makes perfect to get the notches and cuts that you want. It’s easy that.

As each snowflake is unique, this can also be a discussion starter about how God created each of us special and unique and psalm 139.
