Snowflake Wreath Project

     Here's a fun and quick project to add to your holiday decor this year. This simple snowflake wreath.



     I had had these snowflake ornaments on my tree for the past few years and always liked them. When I was in Goodwill a few weeks ago I came across a couple of boxes of them for a ridiculously cheap price and I couldn't pass them up. You can find these at Hobby Lobby and even Target. (Target sells them 4/$1.00 and they have several different colors).

     To assemble your wreath you will need about 9 snowflakes. (I used 3 larger ones and 6 regular sized ones). Lay them out on your workspace. Make sure you overlap your flakes at two points. This will make it more sturdy when you glue it together.


     I used hot glue to adhere my flakes together. To jazz it up a bit I added a sparkly gem that I had on hand from hair flower making and glued them in the center. (These are just a few dollars at Hobby Lobby)



     Once the glue dried, I used a wide ribbon to hang it up. I hung it over a very summer looking picture in my living room.



Happy Decorating!

  5. That is so cool! I'm trying not to decorate the entire house this year, but have "left over" snowflakes and these will work for a more subtle look in our bedroom. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

  24. I "pinned" this last week and made it today! It was so easy and so cheap and so pretty. Thanks for such a great idea. I just have 1 question and it might seem stupid--how did you attach the ribbon? Is the bow separate from the large loop you made?

    1. I have it packed away so I'm gonna have to try and remember. I know the ribbon I just wrapped around the wreath, you can see if you look closely one of the snowflake points actually pokes through it which holds it in place. I can't remember if the ribbon is separate, I don't think so. Hope that helps!

    I also really love the color of your walls...just what I've been looking to find for my new home. Do you happen to remember the name of the paint by any chance?
