Depending on where you live, you might be knee-deep in snow, or maybe you're still hoping for the first flakes of the season. Regardless of how many snow angels you've made this year, you probably had some experience making paper snow flakes as a kid, right?

You know what we speak of: The art class project that required you to fold pieces of paper and use scissors to cut out (semi) intricate designs.

Well, Bar Rucci, the creative mastermind behind Art Bar Blog, has figured out a way to take that kiddie craft to the next level: She made a simple-yet-elegant table runner.

It's really just a bunch of paper snowflakes that have been arranged into a rectangular shape and taped together. How easy! The kraft paper underneath is there to help protect the table and allow the snowflakes to really pop.

If you're not sure you remember how to make these paper flakes, Bar has a quick refresher course: You fold an 8.5" x 11" piece of computer paper into a triangle and trim off the excess paper so when you unfold the paper you have a square.

Then, fold the paper into a triangle a few times and start cutting little notches into the paper. When you unfold it, you'll have a totally symmetrical snowflake!

Recruit some friends (or your kiddos!) to help you make a bunch of totally different snowflakes. Remember, no two snowflakes are ever alike, so you really can't mess this up — no matter how many mimosas you have before brunch.

If you want to take this craft to the next level, add a little bit of glitter, sequins, or mini pom-poms. Just know that we take zero responsibility for the mess that may ensue.
