One of my favorite pastimes when I am bored is to peruse craft blogs. I found this and was fascinated. I went to the Martha Stewart how to and totally enjoyed making a smaller version.
I used 3" pipe cleaners and added 1" pieces to the point. That way I could use a pint canning jar to make the snowflakes.
Here is the finished project.
I don't know if I used too much borax or left the snowflake too long, but it is much bulkier than the ones shown on either site.
I'm trying to decide if I like these enough to give away as Christmas decorations or if I want the girls to do it as a craft project for Activity day or both. Decisions, decisions.
