Dollar stores have the coolest stuff. I found cool dollar store snowflakes and wondered, “if I hot glued them would they melt?”
Do you have snow?
It started snowing here on new years eve. Yep, here in the mountains of Arizona!
The snow mounted up to a foot at our cabin.
A peaceful walk through the snow, a little snowman in the woods, and gallons of hot chocolate…
and now it’s gone! 🙁
So it’s time for dollar store snowflakes!

I bought a bag of dollar store snowflakes and hot glued them on our glass front door!
Yep, I took out the hot glue gun and stuck them to the glass of our beautiful wood front door.
Fortunately, the hot glue pops right off the glass when you’re ready for spring.
This time I hot glued the snowflakes to the marble countertops!
Actually, I was working on hot gluing them together.
Yep, “I was hot gluing snowflakes!”
I’m glad hot glue pops off marble countertops too…
Note, hot gluing plastic can cause the plastic to melt. Kind of like our snowmelt. So a little dab will hold your snowflakes without melting.
I used a hot glue gun with dual settings set on low. I did get the snowflakes glued in a pretty pattern and hung them over the front door.
The hot glue is cleaned from the countertops…
but the glitter will last until July!
I think there’s glitter in my hot chocolate!
If your dollar store doesn’t have plastic snowflakes, I found these on Amazon. Although, more than a $1 I bet the banner would be stunning!
If I’m not careful, Mike is gonna take away my hot glue gun!!!
A snowman is the perfect man. He’s well rounded and comes with his own broom.Unknown
