1. Wrap each stick with the washi tape. If the washi tape is wide enough, adhere the ends to the backside of the stick. Otherwise, trim the excess tape off from the front.
2. To assemble the snowflake, glue one stick perpendicular over a second stick. Repeat with the remaining two sticks. Set aside to dry for a while if using a craft glue. You may wish to use clothes pins to hold them together while drying.
3. Then glue one set over the second so that you have a snowflake shape. Set aside again to dry.
4. When the snowflake is dry, adhere a gem to the center of it. Let a parent or guardian drill a small hole in the top of one of the bottom spokes and then pull a string through to hang it.
