How are your Christmas preparations going?
Mine are… going. 🙂
I made these ornaments to spruce up the garland on our staircase.
I actually bought the wood snowflakes last year, but didn’t find a use for them until now.
What I really like about these is you can make a bunch of them super fast! It makes them perfect for Christmas ornament exchanges. I made these up in a day, and the longest part was waiting for the paint to dry so I could glue everything together. You can spray them all up before you leave for work in the morning, then glue everything together when you get home that night.

Spray the 1″ snowflakes with the silver and copper spray paint. I oversprayed my poor clover lawn, so I got smart and used a cardboard box to spray the rest of the snowflakes so I wouldn’t overspray my lawn again.
Drill holes in the top of the 3″ snowflakes. I used my Dremel 8220 cordless rotary tool. I love my Dremel because it always comes in handy for my DIY projects. You can get one for yourself here.
Spray half the ornaments with the silver paint and the other half with the copper paint, then immediately spray all the ornaments with a light coat of the chalk paint.
This allows the silver and copper paint to bleed through and makes each snowflake unique just like in nature!
Once the paint is completely dry on everything, glue the small snowflakes in the middle of the big snowflakes, then glue the buttons in the middle of the small snowflakes. Run the ribbon through the hole in the big snowflakes and tie into a loop.
Hang your new ornaments up and enjoy!
