Fashion a holiday ornament that's rich in beauty and easy on the budget with this paper snowflake tree crafted from pretty printed scrapbook paper.

  • Two 4-inch and four 2-3/4-inch die-cut snowflake shapes
  • Embroidery needle
  • Long-eye beading needle
  • White embroidery floss
  • Ten 10-mm-round white pearls
  • Medium-width ribbon

How to Make It

  1. To give shape to the tree, slightly trim the tips from one large and one small snowflake shape.
  2. Use the embroidery needle to push a small hole through the center of each snowflake.
  3. Thread the beading needle with an 18-inch length of embroidery floss.
  4. Slip a pearl onto the floss.
  5. Carefully remove the needle, and then rethread it with both ends of the floss. The ends of the floss should be even.
  6. Thread the needle through the bottom of a large snowflake; add two pearls.
  7. Thread the needle through the remaining snowflakes, from largest to smallest, adding two pearls between each shape.
  8. Finish with a pearl at the top.
  9. Sew through the center of the ribbon and secure the thread.
