Beaded Pipe Cleaner Snowflakes... with Messages!

Just stopping in to share these super quick beaded pipe cleaner snowflakes that we made with a bunch of kids this past weekend. I know, I know, there are already a ton of posts out there sharing a nearly identical craft... but ours came out so cute, I had to share them! (Besides, who doesn't enjoy looking through a good homemade ornament post?)

Beaded Pipe Cleaner Snowflake Craft with messages for kids to make for Christmas





These snowflakes are one of those classic quintessential Christmas crafts.  I saw that One Little Project shared one with a sparkly center and I loved that sparkly addition so much that I incorporated it here. I also thought it would be fun to add the letter beads. What kid doesn't enjoy making personalized crafts?

How to Make Beaded Pipe Cleaner Snowflakes:


Here's a brief description of what I did:

(And by the way, I'm not linking to Amazon for any of these items because I got everything from Michaels with a coupon. They had lovely, affordable beads in all sorts of classy colors. We just watched Frozen 2, so I was inspired by the blue color family.)


1. Cut  2 white pipe cleaners in half, to get 4 pieces.

2. Twist three of those pieces together (at their centers) to create a snowflake shape.

3. Slip on beads. Make sure to leave space at the end to curve the pipe cleaner ends in so that the beads don't fall off.

4. Add a sticky glittery rhinestone adhesive jewel in the middle.  Ooh! Bling, bling, baby!

5. Slip a piece of yarn through one of the loops to turn the snowflake into an ornament.
