I love snow and watching each #snowflake fall. The fact that each one is different is magical to me. I've only recently, in the last couple of years, started to incorporate them into my winter decor.

“Every snowflake is unique, yet they are each perfect.” ― Donald L. Hicks

The #snowflakes are simple and easy to make. The supplies you will need are:

  • Clothes pins - Size depends on what size snowflake you want to make. I used a bag of standard clothes pins from the Dollar Tree and the snowflakes were about 6".

  • Hot glue gun - You can use other glues, this sets fast.

  • Twine - I used red twine that I had to make a loop and glued it between one of the clothes pins to hang ornament from.

  • Mod Podge and Glitter - I purchased the Mod Podge from Dollar Tree and glitter from Walmart.

  • Decoration - I had some greens and small pinecones in my stash that I hot glued to the center of the #snowflake.

Instructions:

  1. Pull each of the clothes pins apart. I used 7 of the standard sized clothes pins.

  2. Hot glue opposite sides (the flat side) together. Place a loop of twine in between one of the clothes pins before you hot glue it so you have a permanent hanger.

  3. Hot glue the tops of the new configured clothespin (on the angel) of each one to the next one until you have connected all of them and they have formed your #snowflake.

  4. Cover the entire #snowflake, one side at a time with Mod Podge and then sprinkle it with a white fine glitter or you can use any color you want. When dry turn the #snowflake over and repeat the process on the other side.

  5. Hot glue decoration to the center or wherever you prefer.

  6. Hang on Christmas Tree, in the window, from the mantle as a snowflake banner, or wherever you choose :)

Note: You can use any size clothes pins to make your snowflakes.
