NB! As this is a project involving the use of a hot glue gun, it is NOT suggested for children, unless supervised!
Tip 1: Your glue needs to be appropriately hot (not lukewarm) for a lasting bond!
Tip 2: For painting the ornaments even the simplest Christmas spray paint (usually sold next to spray snow and stuff) works! That's by the way exactly what I used!
The red snowflake is covered with acrylic paint and some glitter.
Tip 3: Attach the ribbon for hanging after spray work. If you want to do it before, cover it to avoid getting paint all over it.
Remark about the care of these simple homemade Christmas ornaments: I found the pasta angles and stars to be the sturdiest, nicely resistant. Mine have stayed intact for several years now. Whereas the snowflakes are more fragile.
