How to Make It:
- Trace the pattern using tracing paper or a copier. Sandwich the stabilizer between the wrong sides of the paper pieces; fuse it to the paper. Place the pattern on the paper and draw around the pattern lightly with a pencil. Cut out shapes. Add additional detail to the shapes by making designs with crafts glue, sprinkling on iridescent glitter and adding sequins.
- When the glue is dry, make a hole through the edge of each snowflake by poking it with an awl or the sharp point of a scissors.
- Add a wire to each snowflake; wire onto the wreath. Add pinecones and other embellishments as desired. Attach wire for hanging.
