A fun craft project to do in the Winter is to make homemade snowflake decor. At Christmas time, they are fun to hang on the tree. But even after Christmas, you can hang them from windows, door knobs, or peg hooks for the whole winter season. There are a variety of different snowflake ornament crafts that use things like twigs, buttons, popsicle sticks, and even toilet paper rolls. This collection of crafts includes all of those plus more. With all of the choices, you should have something already on hand to give one of these a try.
When I was a kid, I loved to make snowflakes out of paper. These snowflake ornaments crafts are just as fun but have a little more lasting powers. They also are nice enough to use for home decor. Making snowflakes is definitely not just for kids!

Twig Snowflake Ornaments
A great way to make a rustic snowflake is by using twigs. You can make all sorts of styles in a lot of different sizes. Just cut some twigs to size and assemble them together in a pattern that makes sense to you. Use hot glue or twine to hold all of the twigs together. Then, you can add embellishments like buttons, beads, or jewels to really make them shine.
Snowflake Out Of Buttons
Speaking of buttons, you can also create a great snowflake design almost entirely out of buttons. All you need to do first is create a base to glue the buttons to. I used twigs, once again, but you can use popsicle sticks or pipe cleaners as a base as well. Vary the size of your buttons to create a more interesting design.
Clothespin Snowflake Ornament
This snowflake ornament uses clothespins that are taken apart. They are then reassembled and used to create a fun winter design. These clothespins were stained for a more finished and rustic look. You could also paint them white and add glamour dust to make them sparkly white like real snow.
Snowflakes With Popsicle Sticks
I think I also make popsicle stick snowflakes as a kid. However, they looked nothing like these! It’s amazing what designs you can come up with just using basic popsicle sticks. I also really like the combination of the natural stick with the ones painted white.
Bookpage Snowflake Ornament
Okay so bookpages are technically paper but this is not your basic paper snowflake! The weaving of the thick layers of pages creates a snowflake that you can display again and again. This design is very intricate and looks like it would take a bit of time and patience to complete.
DIY Wooden Snowflakes
If you have a wood burning tool, this snowflake ornament craft would be a breeze to complete. I love the look of wood burned designs on small, or big, wood slices.
Pipe Cleaner Snowflakes
Hang these snowflakes from garland draped across a mantel or on your Christmas tree. They are simple to make so you can make a lot of them. They also would be great for gift toppers instead of buying bows.
Toilet Paper Roll Snowflakes
If you save toilet paper rolls for crafts, here is another great project for them. It’s another simple craft that can provide you with some quick winter decor.
Beaded Snowflake Ornament
I have seen beaded snowflakes made from colorful beads and pipe cleaners. However, this is my favorite beaded snowflake ornament. Using wooden beads and twine give a nice neutral, clean and rustic chic look.
