Frosty Banners

Although these oversize snowflake streamers look delicate, they're made from a sturdy material that allows them to withstand wet weather.



  • 10- or 15-inch square of weatherproof paper

  • Pencil

  • Scissors and utility knife

  • Hole punch

  • Monofilament

  • Thumbtack or a removable self-adhesive hook


  1. Cut free-form wintry shapes, or download our templates; cut out. We started with a 10- or 15-inch square of weatherproof paper; fold the square in half to form a rectangle.

  2. Continue folding, using template as a guide. Place template on top; outline with pencil.

  3. Cut away edges with scissors; remove interior pieces with a utility knife.

  4. To hang: Punch holes at top and bottom of flakes. Tie monofilament between flakes to join them. Hang from a thumbtack or a removable self-adhesive hook. For greater stability, tie bottom snowflake to porch.
