Hardening Instructions
Wrap a piece of wax paper around a flat piece of cork board, then stretch the snowflake into shape across the surface using straight pins to hold it in place. Once the snowflake is pinned, carefully saturate the thread with clear nail polish, applying glitter on top if desired. Allow the snowflake to dry overnight, then carefully remove the snowflake from the wax paper once it has dried completely. Use tweezers to remove any remaining bits of paper from the threads.

Making the Necklace
To turn the mini snowflake into a pendant, use rounded jewelry pliers to attach a jump ring through one of the long snowflake tips. To wear it, slip the finished pendant onto a chain necklace (or make your own).

  1. Hello hello! I finally made my way over via a comment you made on a post I found through Pinterest. Lol! I’ve been meaning to make my way here since I first say these beautiful snowflakes on IG- but I am sad to say I’m definitely a beginner. In any case it’s good to see another Brooklyn DYIer’s blog and that you are headed to CHA- jealous! You have a new follower!
