Materials List

  • Poly-Fil Biggie Bean Bag Filler
  • Clear round gems with a sticky back
  • Round pearl stickers (white)
  • 30 Gauge wire (silver)
  • 8'' Non-stick scissors
  • Flat nose┬ápliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Hot glue gun with glue

Instructions

  1. Place the following materials on a flat work surface:

    1. Poly-Fil Biggie Bean Bag Filler
    2. Hot glue gun with glue
    3. Gems
    4. Pearls

  2. Hot glue the Poly-Fil Biggie Bean Bag Filler pieces together in the form of the 6-point snow crystal patterns provided. Each snow crystal design has a pattern, creating 14'' in all. The patterns show the placement for each filler piece. Filler pieces should be glued to expose the top or side. The 6-pointed design will be made using the tops of filler pieces only.

  3. Start by placing a drop of hot glue on the side of one bean bag filler piece.

    Note: The hot glue will slightly melt the filler pieces. If using a temperature-controlled glue gun, sue the low setting to minimize melting.

  4. Place a second bean bag filler piece on top of the hot glue. Press together.

  5. Repeat Step 3 on the second filler piece.

  6. Place glued filler piece to the left side of the first glued piece, resulting in a triangle formation.

  7. Continue adding filler pieces, gluing each to the left of the prior one. Do this until you have a formation of one center filler piece surrounded by six filler pieces. This design will look like a flower.

  8. Hot glue two filler pieces to each of the six outer pieces, thereby forming the six-pointed design.

  9. If using a sheet of gems, cut the adhesive strip using the non-stick scissors.

  10. Place a sticker gem on top of each filler piece. The gems will add weight and structure to the snow crystal.

    Note: Snow crystals are delicate due to the lightweight filler pieces. If any additional structure is desired, thread a thin wire through the filler beads.

  11. Create the hanger by threading a 3.5'' piece of the 30-gauge silver wire through a top filler bead. Lightly twist the ends together. Bend the twisted ends into a hook using the flat nose pliers.

  12. Continue making snow crystals. Follow the patterns below or create your own designs. Decorate each with gems and/or pearl stickers. Embellish one or both sides.

This is adorable, looks like a lot of glueing. I have not looked or seen for the balls. I did copy pattern and used it for another Fava pattern with recycled buttoms. So thank you for both patterns

Christmas ornaments

One year I made mini marshmallow snow flakes with my daughter. It was an easy and fun craft to make and it was edible.

I love making clear ball ornaments with artificial snow in them, but this is a great idea to try.

My favorite snowflake thing to make is earrings...glitz or not.

My favorite snowflake craft is crocheting snowflakes!
