Recycled Snowflake Ornament

By:

Gather up your favorite buttons and an empty cereal box for your next round of Christmas ornament crafts. A Recycled Snowflake Ornament from Heidi Borchers is a frugal option for budget-conscious crafters. Hang this elegant piece on your tree for a touch of fun. Customize the piece with craft wire and rhinestones - no two snowflakes should look the same.
