This Clothespin Glitter Snowflake Ornaments is a fun holiday craft for kids.
It is our family tradition that the Friday after Thanksgiving we drive to Wyoming (from Utah) and cut down the perfect Christmas tree. We love getting bundled up in our winter clothes and hiking through the cold snow until we spot the perfect tree. Each kid then each takes turns cutting down the tree. We take it home and spend the rest of the day decorating for the holidays. We have dozens of our favorite handmade ornaments to hang on the tree. This Clothespin Glitter Snowflake Ornaments makes a colorful addition to a Christmas tree.
Clothespin Glitter Snowflake Ornaments
Clothespins (Regular and Small)
Glitter (Silver and Teal)
Twine or Ribbon
Twist the clothespins to remove the metal portion.
Glue two pieces of the clothespin together. Flat side to flat side. Refer to the photo. You need to do this eight times with the regular and small clothespins for each snowflake.
Glue two of the clothespin pieces you just made in step 2 to each other, end to end. Refer to the photo.
Glue two more clothespin pieces together on each side of the ones you glued together in step 3. Refer to the photo.
Glue a clothespin piece in between each clothespin. Refer to the photo. Allow the glue to dry completely.
Repeat the steps above with the regular and small size clothespins.
Paint the snowflakes white. Paint the front and the back. Allow paint to dry completely.
Coat the regular size snowflake clothespin with glue and then sprinkle silver or teal glitter on it. Shake off excess.
Repeat step 8 with the small sized snowflake clothespin. Use the opposite color glitter. Allow the glue to dry completely.
Glue the small snowflake clothespin on top of the regular size snowflake clothespin. Allow glue to dry completely.
Turn the ornament over and glue twine or ribbon onto the back for hanging.
Your snowflake is ready to shine brightly on your Christmas tree!
