Today is my son’s 12th birthday, so I had him help me make some snowflakes I saw on the Martha Stewart website for decorating around the house.  Fun time and easy to do!!

Snowflake Ornaments

What you need:
Wire Cutters or Old Scissors
White Pipe Cleaner
Needlenose Pliers

1.  Using a wire cutter or old scissors, cut (3) 6″ pieces of pipe cleaner. Then cut (6) 2½” pieces, (6) 2″ pieces, and (6) 1½” pieces.

2. Twist 6″ pieces together at their midpoints to make a six-spoked asterisk. Tighten twist by clamping down with needlenose pliers.

3. Center one 2½” piece at the midpoint of a spoke, and twist onto spoke. Tighten twist with needlenose pliers. Repeat on remaining 5 spokes.

4. About ½” from an arm attached in step 3 (toward spoke’s tip), center one 2″ piece, and twist onto spoke. Tighten twist with needlenose pliers. Repeat on remaining 5 spokes.
5. About ½” from an arm attached in step 4 (toward spoke’s tip), center one 1½” piece, and twist onto spoke. Tighten twist with needlenose pliers. Repeat on remaining 5 spokes. Trim arms if needed.

6.  Tie a ribbon or thread to top. Hang and enjoy!
