Christmas Crafts: Wooden Snowflakes

Hey all! Today I'm going to show you how to make some of the easiest decorations I've ever made.



They make for super cute accents for your holiday season. You can use them on your holiday table at each place setting, put them in your tree or window as ornaments, or decorate your gifts under the tree with them!

So here's what you'll need:
  • Clothespins (8 pins per snowflake)- I got mine at Dollar Tree (36/pack)
  • Glue gun/sticks
  • Stain or Paint
  • Paper plate (for the glue)

Here's what you'll do:

Take apart each of your 8 clothespins, separating each pair of wooden sticks & the metal spring.



Then, hot glue the flat sides of each pin together, as shown below. Repeat a total of 8 times for each snowflake.



Attach two of the clothespins together with hot glue like so.


Then attach two more clothespins, one on each side. You should now have a plus sign or an "x" made out of clothespins.




After your "x" is formed, place the remaining 4 clothespins in each corner, creating your snowflake!




Boom. Done.

You can stop there, or choose to paint or stain each snowflake. I'm going to leave mine naked for a while until I decide on a stain.

But seriously- are these not one of the most precious things you've ever seen? They're so adorable and so incredibly easy to make! I made 6 of them in about a half hour, so you can imagine what you could accomplish on a Netflix binge of Christmas movies.

I also was able to start on another Christmas craft- the Winter Window Scene! More on that later this week, though :)



Until next time!
