Pipe Cleaner Snowflakes

Christmas is a time for fun, joy, and crafting! My daughter likes crafts that are quick and easy. She also loves anything to get in the holiday spirit. We made these cute little pipe cleaner snowflakes for a simple craft. I made them extra colorful with colorful beads. To look more snowy you can add silver, blue, or white beads. You just need a few things to make them 


Materials for pipe cleaner snowflakes:

Silver, blue, or white pipe cleaners


First take a pipe cleaner and cut it into 3 pieces.


Twist the pieces together in the middle and spread them out evenly.

Put beads on each side. You can do any patterns you want with the beads. I used colorful beads but snowy colors work too. Also you can use white pipe cleaners. I used silver but they do get a bit messy when you cut them.

Fold the top into a v shape above the beads. This keeps the beads on and makes it look like a snowflake!

This is such a simple pipe cleaner snowflake craft. We don’t get any snow around here in Florida so we have to make our own. For younger kids you can help them out with the beads or get it prepped to put the beads on. These are such a fun little craft for Christmas or winter.
