Delicate Snowflake Ornament

By: Mary Morton for Rings & Things

Create a delicate snowflake ornament with colorful "cocktail" beads. A snowflake wire form makes this project a snap. Cover your tree with these beaded snowflake ornaments from Rings & Things or hang from windows.

Delicate Snowflake Ornament


  • 1 #20-002-3220 Toho Seed Bead Cocktails™, tropical hut
  • 1 #55-910 Snowflake wire form
  • 6 #43-009-3 Figure-8 wire connectors
  • 13 #23-319-044 Tip-drilled glass teardrop beads
  • 1ft. #46-708-14 ColourCraft® 28-gauge wire, silver plate
  • Heavy-duty round-nose pliers
  • small cutters


  1. Start by randomly adding beads onto one (of six) section(s) of the snowflake form. Once you have finished one section of the snowflake form, use your round-nose pliers to create a loop at the end of the wire.
  2. Attach a teardrop bead to the large end of one figure-8 connector. Add this to the end of your completed section.
  3. Repeat steps 1-2 five more times for a total of six sections.
  4. Tie a teardrop bead to the center of the snowflake using approx. 1ft of small beading wire. Weave wire around the snowflake prongs, adding a teardrop bead after each prong. Go through your beads a few times making sure your wire weave is both on top of the snowflake form, and the bottom. Finish by “tying” a wire knot and snipping any extra wire. Be aware of sharp edges and file them down with a small file.

TIP: Wire wrapping or weaving does not need to be a precise or perfected skill. As long as the beads look the way you want them, you have “done it right.” Don’t give up! It may take a few tries to get it the way you like it.

This is great! I was looking for something to make with my 6 grandchildren aged 3 - 10 and I can see them all coping with being able to make this (or similar) - the younger ones with supervision should be able to manage it and the older ones can be as inventive as they like! THANKS...

its beautiful ,cause its also uniqe

Hi judyg - You can purchase these beads online. A Google search should give you a list of vendors to choose from. Hope this helps! -The editors of FaveCrafts

I love this ornament. Please tell me where I can get the beads listed. Love that there are numbers but need the website please. Thanks, Judy
