Paper Snowflakes and Clove Oranges, Minecraft Style!

Sprout requested some Christmas crafts today, so we decided to put a Minecraft twist on them... and voila! ...Minecraft Creeper and pickaxe paper snowflakes...


 ...and a Minecraft Creeper orange and clove Christmas pomander (There's also a Spiderman-y one there for Squidge and my far less inspired spirally one :D)


If you've not made the orange and clove things before, all you do is push whole cloves into the orange. Your hands will smell festive for hours!

You can download a template for the Minecraft creeper and pickaxe paper snowflake here. I had issues with feeding a baby at the same time plus being short on time today, hence the angles being a bit out so just use the template as a guide :)

  1. Do you have instructions for how to make the snowflake?

    1. Yep :) just download the template from the link in the last paragraph, fold horizontally then fold both sides over the middle along the lines (ish!), then cut out the dark bits. Like I said the lines are a little bit out and I didn't have time to change it so just use them as a guide :)
