We really do have a “thing” about DIY Christmas Ornaments for Kids! Especially when they are as pretty as these Beaded Pipecleaner Snowflakes. These easy pipecleaner snowflakes will be much loved by both preschoolers AND older kids.. in fact, I think they are pretty enough for grown ups to make.
Though we have designed and made them as a Christmas Tree Ornament, I think these beaded pipe cleaner snowflakes would look stunning hanging in your windows too and catching that Winter Sun!! Who says winter has to be “boring and dull” once Christmas has passed? So don’t just make these as your Christmas Ornaments this year… but once they come off your Christmas tree, hang themin your windows as Winter Decorations too!! Hooray for Snowflake Crafts for Kids!
Teachers: this is also a fantastic craft for developing fine motor skills whilst making keepsakes for the children to take home to family!
Beaded Pipecleaner Snowflakes – Materials
One large pipecleaner per snowflake (though can make them bigger if you wish) – approx 30cm (e.g. US/ UK)
We used white pipec cleaners – white for snow.. but light blue or silver would be gorgeous too!!
Transparent beads – though these look pretty with any beads… (e.g. US/ UK or UK)
We used some beads in our “Kids Made Modern Bead” kit that were perfect. But any transparent bead will do!
If hanging in your window – fishing line wire is great (US / UK)!
We have put our favourite Beaded Pipecleaner Snowflake materials in our Amazon Affiliate shop for you here: Ornaments 101 Amazon Shop.
