Tip 1Take your snowflake a step further and embellish the ends. Add a charm or dangle to the loops at the end of each wire. Attach your snowflake to packages for that extra touch. Even add an ornament hook or ribbon to one of the loops to decorate your tree or your house!

Step 1

Choose a snowflake form.

Step 2

Choose one of the wires and add your first bead.

Step 3

It is a good idea to start with small beads in the center. The wires are close together here and this will ensure all your beads will fit.

Step 4

Continue adding beads to the wire, leaving at least 1/2 inch of space at the top.

Step 5

Firmly grasp the end of the wire with your round nose pliers so the wire is flush with the tool.

Step 6

Rotate the pliers to form a loop.

Step 7

Rotate the pliers as far as your wrist allows and re-adjust, making sure to stay in the same spot on your pliers.

Step 8

Continue rotating until a complete loop is formed.

Step 9

Repeat the process for the remaining wires on your snowflake.
