Warm, wonderful snowflakes...


We made these woolly snowflakes last year using felt balls and wire snowflake forms. Press the felt balls onto the spokes and when you are finished with each spoke just turn the wire end with a pair of chain nosed pliers. This is a good family craft, just about anyone can enjoy making a snowflake. We also string the felt balls on thread with a needle and make long garlands. My girls are all about process, so the same garland can get made and cut and made again in just a few days. We keep a big jar of felt balls on our mantle all winter long for crafts; snowflakes, making those garlands, sorting by size and color, even for using as pretend treats at dolly tea parties!
