Frosted Snowflake

About this design:

I love the idea of using our Czech glass mix strands to create and ombre effect. I wanted to keep it simple for myself by only using one product, but of course you could go all out and add many types of beads. These make great gifts! Check out our snowflake page for more inspo.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

For one snowflake you will need 5 strands of glacier mix Czech glass, and a 6" snowflake frame. The frames come in a 5 pack. I listed the 3.75" frames in the product list if you want to make a smaller version instead.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut your Czech glass strands and separate the colors from blues to crystal. I worked one snowflake leg at a time. String on beads in the order shown. I glued the last two bead together and then a little more glue on the tip. I wrapped a little wire around one tip and created a little hook. You could tie on hemp or ribbon too.

    I love the ombre effect of this snowflake! I can visualize a tree full of different colored hombre snow flakes.

    I purchased some snowflake frames several years back, but haven’t been moved to use them…until now! The ombre effect you’ve created here is the inspiration I need to get them out. Thanks bunches!
