Homemade Snowflake Ornaments With Beads Craft
Step 1: Create your DIY snowflake ornaments
Choose two pipe cleaners, any colors you like, and cut them in half. Note that the colors you choose will be the colors that show when the ornament is finished!
Make an X with two of the pipe cleaners, then lay the third under the middle of the X, folding the left side to the right, then the right side to the left. Take the last pipe cleaner, place it in the up and down position, and fold it across the middle the same way you did the last one. Try to make each side as even as possible.
Step 2: Make the DIY snowflake ornaments hanger
Next, you’ll need to identify the longest side, this will be the hanger. Thread on about 6 – 8 beads, leaving about an inch at the end of the pipe cleaner. Fold this end into a loop.
Step 3: Thread on the beads
Place the beads onto each of the remaining pipe cleaners, leaving a small piece exposed at the end. Fold each of the ends backwards over the beads.
Straighten out each beaded pipe cleaner to make sure it’s in snowflake form. Now, hang on a tree and admire!
My kids really liked making this easy snowflake craft ideas, it was a fun evening holiday treat. Hope you have a great time making these at home with your family!
