When I first made this craft I used white pipe cleaners. Recently I found sparkly white pipe cleaners that would be idea for this project. The sparkly ones make a nice looking snowflake.
You will need three twelve-inch white pipe cleaners. You will also need a six-inch piece. Believe me this is all you will need. Your kids could even do this craft in the car on the way to grandma’s house.
Place the end that you just twisted together over your finger. Twist so that there is a circle. Your pipe cleaner should have a circle on each end and oval between the two.
Make two more snowflake arms like you did above. You will want a total of three arms.
Place the three folded pipe cleaners on top of each other. Imagine a clock. The first snowflake arm is at twelve and six. The next arm is at two and eight. The last arm is at four and ten.
Depending how you wove the center together you will have either an open design or it will be filled in.
Add a string to hang from the windowsill or on the Christmas tree.
I also used sparkly gold pipe cleaners to make a star ornament at Christmas time. Someday I would like to decorate the tree with just snowflakes and stars that I have made.
