Today is Day 1 of A Creative Christmas in November...I hope you enjoy all the fun posts and give the guests a TON of love :)
So let's get to it with our first fabulous guest post!!!
Hi everyone! I am so glad that Kelsey is letting me guest post today as part of the "A Creative Christmas!" I love this time of year! I love the fresh snow, hot chocolate, cuddling with my husband and son, chillin' by the Christmas tree, and looking at Christmas lights.
My name is Stephanie and I blog over at My Li'l Pumpkin Patch.
I love to create anything. I also love to be frugal, and I am going to show you how to make a snowflake ornament today.
This is all you will need:
Thick and Thin Wire (one for the skeleton, one for wrapping)
Paper and Pen
Ribbon or Twine (for hanging it)
First, draw this "asterisk" shape onto paper so you have a pattern to follow.
Then, make arms by folding the wire the length of the line and twisting. Repeat with all 6 (or however many arms you choose).
I found it is easiest to make a loop and then twist it a whole bunch.
I wrapped some more wire around the center to secure the arms and to add some pretty-ness to the center.
Then, I took some thin scrapbook wire (you could use thin jewelry wire) and wrapped it around each arm
and then created a fun design. I thought it would be pretty to add some little beads, but I couldn't find mine. I could find them when I didn't need them, but things tend to disappear when I need them.
Does this happen to anyone else?
There countless ways to use this fun snowflake: dress up a gift, hang it on your tree, hang it on your doorknobs (I love doing this!), give it as a gift, make a garland, etc.
I am so glad I got to be at Tattered and Inked today to share this with you! I would love it if you stopped by my blog to say hi!
