Snowflakes Falling Everywhere

Kay Shell at Orchardville Church in Xenia, Illinois brings us this über hip Christmas design.

To create these flakes they downloaded some designs from Google images and projected them onto 4’x8′ sheets of 2-inch thick white styrofoam. The background was styrofoam sheets painted dark blue and screwed into upright black 2×4’s. The snowflakes were then attached to the background with long nails and the holes were covered with spackle. Once the snowflakes were in place they curved the edges with a hot knife. Random flakes were hung from the ceiling with clear fishing line.

  1. How did they cut the snowflakes so they were so straight? Not a wire cutter, because it tends to curve?

    • We used a electric jigsaw knife. At first we tried a hot knife and it kept over heating and was hard to control a straight angle on the foam board. Altogether it took about 4 hours to get them all cut for what you see in the pictures.

  2. I am working on the same kind of idea for our church. Where/ how did you make the patterns for the snowflakes?

  3. I am making large snowflakes for stage at church. I have lots of cardboard. Need easy way to cut shapes. Help!

  4. Where can I get the foam board and how much
