Would you like to learn How To Make an Embellished Snowflake Ornament with an “easy to follow” tutorial? Snowflakes are pretty on any styled Christmas tree. So let’s see what you will need…
How To Make an Embellished Snowflake Ornament…
Your component list should include:
*12-24 Snowflake Ornaments. (I used a large size. About 6 inches across)
*Craft paint-your color choice. I used, red, royal blue, pink and Christmas green
*Sequins-I used iridescent white.
*Glitter-I used Diamond Dust.
*2- Sponge Brushes
*Jingle Bells-.79 inches
*Hot Glue Gun
*Hot Glue Sticks
My first step was to see how the wooden words would fit on the snowflakes.
Some words had to fit at an angle and others could fit straight across the snowflake.
Before I attached the words to the snowflakes, I painted them in the color choices, using a sponge paint brush. While the paint was drying, using a sponge bush, I “painted” the words with Mod Podge and iridescent glitter. This would give each word a pretty glow.
Once each word was completely dry-using a hot clue gun, I attached the words to the snowflakes. Doing the best I could to keep them centered and straight.
How To Make an Embellished Snowflake Ornament with tulle and feathers is easy and just takes a little creativity.
The next step was to attach the tulle. Cutting 3×2 strips I tied a knot in the center of each strip. Once again, using a hot glue I adhered the tulle knot to the top of the snowflake.
With the silver elastic cord, I tied 2 jingle bells together. I hot glued the bells on tops of the tulle. For an touch of texture I tucked white feathers behind the bells. Attaching them with hot glue. I did this to only some of them.
Also to make a “hanger” for your snowflake ornament-tie a loop of the silver elastic cord to the “top” of the snowflake for hanging.
One last touch was to add an iridescent sequin to each tip of the snowflake. This is not neccessary, but I wanted to add a little more texture.
Since I am making these for our grand-kids for Christmas, I made 24.
This is How To Make an Embellished Snowflake Ornament. This is how I did it. You can use whatever YOU like. It adds YOUR own touch. And makes each snowflake more unique and adds your own style.
What do YOU think YOU will add to YOUR snowflake ornaments? I would love to hear all about it…
