Snowflakes are so beautiful when they are falling from the sky. Don’t you agree?
What is the Definition of a Snowflake?
Per the Oxford Dictionary, a flake of snow, especially a feathery ice crystal, typically displaying delicate sixfold symmetry.
Items you will Need to Make a Clothespin Snowflake:
It really doesn’t take much but a hot glue gun, clothespins, and some acrylic paint.
Directions to Make a Clothespin Snowflake:
I went ahead and made up the clothespin snowflakes by removing the metal piece between the two pieces of wood. Then I hot glued the two flat sides together.
Once that was completed I started assembling the snowflake to visually see it before gluing it into place. Then it was time to paint and decorate!
I let the boys decide from my tote of paints which color they would like. Once they completed one side we let it dry for 1-hour before flipping over and doing the other.
Can you guess what color the boys and I picked?
I am sure you could. Jack picked the dark blue and Luke picked the light blue. Of course, I picked white because if I could I would have everything white.
We have now created beautiful snowflakes!
What to do with those clothespin snowflakes?
- Hang them on your tree as ornaments or outside on some bare trees after the leaves have fallen.
- Use them as a topper on your Christmas Tree
- Place on a winter wreath that you can put on your front door.
- Gifts for family members as you can add a wallet size picture.
- You could even add a magnet to them and place them on your fridge for winter decor.
Where would hang or put your homemade snowflakes? What are some fun things that you have made with clothespins? I would love to know.
