Ribbon Snowflake Ornament

Snowflakes falling all over town…..do you know that classic Christmas tune? That was a favorite in my hubby’s family growing up and every year when the family is all together again, that ever popular tune comes out in all it’s glory! It is hilarious and always ends with a great big holly jolly laugh from everyone singing and those lucky enough to witness the pure talent! Today, we are celebrating beautiful and unique snowflakes from gorgeous metallic ribbon. These snowflakes are absolutely lovely and some of my favorites of the season (just like my hubby’s song)! Enjoy this festive project by Kaeleen!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Today I am going to share with you a fun and easy Ribbon Snowflake Ornament. You can attach it to a plate of goodies for your neighbor or friend, hang it on your tree or in your front window. The possibilities are endless, so let’s begin!

You will need:
3/8″ Ribbon
*I used Silver Metallic Grosgrain
Hot Glue
Scissors
Ruler

Snowflake Button
Measure and cut 12 pieces of ribbon 7 inches long each… or how ever big you want your snowflake.

Take two of the cut ribbon pieces, and glue one on top of the other like this to make a plus sign.

Take two more pieces and glue them under the piece going up and down.

Take your remaining two and glue them in a weave, under over under.

Do those 4 steps over, so you have two weaves.

Take the outside pieces of each corner and fold together to make a tear drop shape leaving the center ones straight.

Do this with both weaves.

Place the two weaves off set on top of each other.
Pull the lower straight ribbon pieces through to the top, and push the top ones down through.

Glue the straight pieces to the tear drop shape, then trim them.

Thank you Kaeleen! What a gorgeous, shimmery, and shiny snowflake! I love that metallic ribbon and how the lights from your tree make it glisten and shine even more! Looking at this lovely snowflake, you would never think it only takes a few steps to construct. It is truly a piece of art and so stunning! Snowflakes are all one of a kind and so unique, so be creative with your ribbon placement and make your very own snowflake. In fact, make an entire blizzard of snowflakes of all different sizes and colors.

Do you love snowflakes and displaying them all winter long? Here are a few more snowflake inspired projects that are simple to make and so fun to display!

    When I saw the photo of your gorgeous snowflake, Kaeleen, I assumed that the project was going to be way over my head, so I started to bookmark this page, figuring that I’d take a look at it (maybe in February – hehe) when I wasn’t so frantic about the cards and wrapping I still have to do by Christmas. But curiosity got the better of me, and after I scrolled down the page, I said to my all-thumbs self, “You can do this, Pat! You really can!” So my new plan is to get started on the snowflakes by January 1, and when I have about six or eight of them done, I’ll hang several at different lengths from our (only) two front-facing windows. No post-Christmas doldrums for me this year! (Next year, I’ll make more for the side windows!)

    Thank you for sharing such a beautiful project… I love the metallic grosgrain, but the Dazzle Grosgrain in white would be pretty, too. Those moms with Frozen fans in the house could also make some in a few shades of blue/bluish-green Dazzle Grosgrain!

    I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas, Kaeleen. I look forward to seeing more of your wonderful tutorials in the New Year! xoxo
