Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

So, maybe this is considered a Christmas song but I personally feel that it's more of a seasonal song and should be played at least until February.  :o)  Can't help, LOVE this song and I LOVE the snow!  Weird, maybe, but I've come to terms with that and I'm definitely OK with it.

There's just something about the fresh fallen snow when it's really cold outside and the sun is shining.  I just love the when the snow sparkles, I imagine you can almost see each individual snowflake.  The glitter paper that Boss Kut sells is perfect to achieve this look and pictures really don't do it justice.  The glitter doesn't flake off, the Gazelle cuts it easily, and beautifully!!

I recently had the opportunity to work with another brand of glitter paper and was left disappointed.  I swear I was covered in as much of the glitter as the project was!  100% convinced me to stick with Boss Kut glitter paper.

Onto this project!  I started with a white Styrofoam wreath and added some snow to it with Mod Podge.  I could have easily just kept the wreath as was but I wanted some sparkle and added dimension to it.

I then cut out several different shapes of the Snowflakes 0598, Snowflake by Phyllis Parkins 0875, and Snowflake II by Phyllis Parkins 0876 in 3 different colors of glitter paper.

Then I typed out "LET," "IT," and "SNOW" in the Funtime font Cooper Black.  For the word "SNOW" I removed the "O" and just added spaces so that I could add the snowflake.  With all the words, I outlined them twice so that I could add all the colors to my sentiment.

Using fishing line, I hung the sentiment and a couple of the snowflakes to the center of my wreath.

With the snowflakes on the wreath, I simply used push pins to attach them to the Styrofoam.  I really like how easy using the push pins are and it make it simple to rearrange it until I got it just as I liked it.

Thanks for looking!!
