If you’re looking for an easy winter decor project that even a kid could do, this ombre snowflake art is perfect! Looks great on the wall or mantel.

Easy Ombre Snowflake Art for WinterI love the snow! I know that some of you who are sitting in snow covered areas are laughing at me here in snowless Atlanta – but seriously, I do. And I always end up living in areas where there is no snow . . . what is that about?

Well, I’ve figured out a way to have snow in my abode all year round – with these DIY ombre snowflake art on canvas. Just painting canvases one color wasn’t going to work for me, which is why I went for the ombre effect.

Even though these canvases just give the snow idea without actual snow, I’m still going to have the hot chocolate. Is that okay?

I used something for clay (I don’t even know what it is), but you’ll need a sharp something-or-other to poke out the little paper bits that are still in the snowflakes. It took a minute to poke these out, but you can do it while watching Real Housewives.
