Handmade Holiday DIY

These snowflakes may seem complicated, but they really are not. It took a little bit to figure out the first one, but once I did, I just couldn’t stop making them. I actually wanted to make them in white and light blue. However, I ended up making them in white and red.

Holiday Decoration

There is a cute Christmas hat that I made and it seemed like snowflakes would be the prefect adornment. You be the judge. Taking the time to create handmade DIY items for your home and family can be so rewarding.

Create unique handmade pieces to decorate gifts, hang on the Christmas tree, adorn a window, or just scatter in a coffee table as a coaster.

Stiffening the Crochet Snowflake

I did not use any type of stiffener for these snowflakes; however, I think that they would look nicer if I did.
