sparkly clothespin snowflake

​This project is intended for kids ages 6+. With just clothespins and glitter, your family can make an amazing snowflake together. All it takes is a little gluing to make your holiday a bit brighter. Just like real snowflakes, every one of them is unique! Enjoy this fun project designed by Kiki Stevens.
Step 1

ADULT: Break apart the clothespins and set aside the spring.

Step 2

ADULT: Add some glue onto one piece of the flat side of the clothespin and then glue it to the other half of the clothespin.
TIP: The flat sides should be connecting.​

Step 3

ADULT: If you plan to hang this on your tree, take a piece of bakers twine and cut a 6” [15.2 cm] piece and make a loop and connect that to one of your open clothespin pieces after adding the glue and press together the other flat side, so it’s secured in tightly.

Step 4

Press the pieces together firmly and allow the individual pieces time to dry. You’ll need eight clothespins to make one snowflake.
TIP: Make a variety of sizes to give your tree some flair!

Step 5

ADULT: Glue the clothespin pieces together to form a snowflake. Start by gluing four pieces together first and make an “X” shape by gluing the larger ends together first. Next, take the remaining four clothespins and glue them into the remaining corners of the “X”. You’ll need to use hot glue for a stronger hold on this step. Adults only should do this part.
TIP: You can also glue smaller pieces on top of the larger clothespin snowflake for added detail.​

Step 6

Now, paint the whole snowflake as you’d like or you can leave as is for a more natural look.​

Step 7

For extra sparkle and flair add some glitter to your snowflake. Simply brush the ornament with Mod Podge® Wash Out For Kids and sprinkle with glitter! Be sure to have some paper down while doing this, as it can make a bit of a mess.​
