How To Make Stunning Bottle Top Snowflake Decorations

I’m a big fan of making your own Christmas decorations especially when they’re stylish, quick and thrifty these Bottle Top Snowflake Decorations. I came up with these when I was revisiting my bottle top flower crafts recently to join in with a blogger challenge. They weren’t seasonal enough for what I was after so with a teeny bit of tweaking I came up with this delicate snowflake.

Make your own stunning bottle top snowflake Christmas decorations. They add a gorgeous flurry of white to you home and are perfect for decorating walls, furniture and Christmas trees.

To Make Your Bottle Top Snowflake Decoration You Will Need

  • Glitter – silver or pale blue. I’ve use coarse PVC glitter and very fine polyester glitter (Martha Stewart) to make mine.
  • 12cm white tissue paper circles
  • Bottle tops
  • PVA glue (white glue)
  • Red house hold string

You will also need, small containers to put the glitter and glue in, paintbrush to spread the glue and small sharp scissors.

Materials for a super simple bottle top snowflake christmas decoration


The first thing you need to do is paint PVA glue evenly over the top and sides of your bottle tops. Then place them face down in your glitter. Gently place you pointy finger into the bottle top and move it carefully into the glitter so the edges are covered. Carefully remove and set to one side to dry.

Whilst your bottle tops are drying you need to cut out your snowflakes. The underneath of the snowflake is a daisy. Fold your tissue paper circle in half 5 times and using small pointed scissors, cut a petal shape. Make sure to cut approximately half way down the each side and be careful as it’s very small. When you upen it up you should have a flower shape. If you’re not sure what I mean by folding the circle have a look here.

Fold another paper circle in half 4 times and cut out a snowflake design. Again be careful and make sure you have sharp pointed scissors as you’re dealing with a small area to cut. bottle top snowflake christmas decoration

Open out your snowflake and glue it on to the top of the flower using a small dot of PVA glue in the centre.
