Day 6 of Christmas crafts- Pipe cleaner snowflake

I love how easy these are to make! I made them last year for my grandparents and they loved them.

pair of scissors
white pipe cleaners

I used 3 pipe cleaners and twisted them in the center like below.
I then cut 6 pipe cleaners in half and placed them on the base snow flake. I put 2 halves on each spoke. But you can mix it and add 3 to each spoke, etc. Then just make sure each twist is tightened. You may want to use a needle nose pliers to help tighten. I usually just use my hands to tighten.

Then glue a loop of cord to the back of a spoke so you can hang it on the wall or on your fire mantel.
