Sparkling Snowflake Ornaments


About this design:

Making snowflake ornaments could not be easier using these great wire frames that come in 2 ideal sizes. All you need to do is pick some fab sparkle (like our faceted crystal strands) and you are good to go. :)

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
To make your snowflake, a few important tips will come in very handy.
First, make sure to string small beads/seed beads first onto each arm of the snowflake before you string on your larger beads. You can also wrap in cord, ribbon, or wire at the center of the snowflake in place of the small beads.
Step 2:
I recommend finishing off each arm of the snowflake as you go. This will keep beads from flying everywhere. You will need 2 pairs of pliers, I found that my bent nose and chain nose pliers worked best for me.

    I agree; these are much nicer than the ones I made 20 or so years ago when Martha Stewart popularized them. Back then, we didn’t have the frames and had to wire our own. For those of us who don’t solder, the centers got a little messy.

    I would like to order the snowflake frame but it doesn’t have a place for me to order it. Help.
