Winter Wool Snowflake Ornaments

Pure white woolen fabric, beads, and glitter make these snowflakes sparkle. And the only sewing involved is adding the beads.

What You Need:

You can print and trace the pattern of this snowflake or design your own.
  • Tracing paper
  • Heavy-weight fusible webbing
  • Iron
  • Medium-weight white wool
  • Scissors
  • White Duncan SnowWriters paint pen (available at crafts stores)
  • 1-inch crystal bugle beads
  • 3/8-inch clear-plastic star beads
  • Large crystal seed beads
  • 1/2-inch sew-on white iris sequin snowflakes
  • 12 inches 1/8-inch-wide ribbon
  • White thread
  • Beading needle
  • Paintbrush
  • Silver glitter paint (available at crafts stores)


1. Trace a snowflake pattern onto fusible webbing. You can print and trace the outline of the snowflake in the photo onto tracing paper and then enlarge it on a photocopier. Or you can create or trace another design. Your pattern should be about 6 inches across at the widest points.

2. Fuse the webbing to the wrong side of the wool fabric following the manufacturer's directions.

3. Cut out the snowflake shape from the fused wool fabric. Remove the backing from the fusible webbing.

4. Place the ends of the ribbon on the webbing at the top of the snowflake, overlapping the edge about 1/2 inch to make a hanging loop. Fuse the snowflake shape to another piece of wool fabric so both the front and the back of the snowflake is wool.

5. Cut out the snowflake shape a second time, being careful not to cut off the hanging loop.

6. Seal the raw edges of the snowflake using paint pen. Let the paint dry.

7. Stitch beads to the snowflake as shown. Use a paintbrush to add paint to the surface of the snowflake.

More Ideas:

  • Cut snowflakes from paper instead of fabric and attach them to a plain colored note card to make a special holiday greeting card.
  • To enjoy these glistening snowflakes all winter long, use them to trim table linens.
