DIY Clothespin Snowflake Ornaments

Here's an easy craft.
                               You can make these as  ornaments or use to clip on to packages,

                                                           wreaths, garland or just about anything!

To start you will need some clothes pins....go look in your LAUNDRY ROOM first....
then stop by the store if needed.

                                                         The Dollar Tree has clothespins.

                                                           They come 36 to a pack.

                                           You will need 9 clothespins per snowflake,

                                      because 1 is used on the back so it can clip to the tree.

                  You will also need glue. I used wood glue, but you can use hot glue if you prefer.


You will be able to make 4 snowflakes with 1 pkg.
Go ahead and gently twist 8 pins apart.

You will glue the smooth sides together.
Glue 4 to make an X add 4 more. Last pin will be centered on back side.
Allow to dry. Leave natural or paint white, add glitter if you like. 
 I did not show that step. Be creative.
 I use one as a Tree Topper on my small trees.
So you can make 4 snowflakes for $1 
Finished size approx. 6 1/2'' x 6'' 
Update: For Christmas 2018
I made some star/snowflake clips
These were from the Dollar Tree.
Take apart just like the large clothespins.
Glue together with Tacky or white glue.
If you add a clothespin to the back,
you will be able to clip these on to anything.

I used white acrylic paint and white crystal glitter on this one
and clipped it to the top of this bottle brush tree.

clipped to a package.
Mini : Finished size approx.  2 1/2'' x 2''
Hope you enjoyed this quick craft.
