Here’s what you will need:

SNOWFLAKE CRAFTAfter reading some of the other tutorials, I followed the recommendation to use a clear, smooth surface to make the snowflakes. I tried gluing straight onto a clear dish but quickly realized that the hot glue would not come up for me.

So, I sprayed it down with some good old cooking spray before putting the hot glue down and that did the trick. As soon as the glue was cool, the snowflakes came right up. I sketched out some snowflakes on a piece of paper and glued it to the underside of the dish to use as a guide.

After I glued the snowflakes, I added another bead of glue and stuck on the skewers and added some more glue on top to make sure they were really secure.
