Making Metal Snowflakes

December 19, 2016

I made these awhile back, and found them when I was reorganizing all the Christmas goodies.
Here is the how-to:
I used a sheet of screen door or other screen replacement material i found at the hardware store.

Next I drew with a marker the part I would cut out. It's easy to cut with scissors.

I cut out a square to make it easier to handle.

Then I cut out where I had indicated with the marker.

Then I flattened the main piece with my rawhide hammer.

Next I cut out 4 additional snowflake arms to fill in and make the whole snowflake.

I folded over the top part of the additional pieces and flattened.

Next it was glue, glitter and some rhinestones.

Voila.

It's snowing.
