Twist and turn some pipe cleaners to make this pretty pipe cleaner snowflake decoration for your window or tree. Or make lots and combine in a snowflake mobile. This is a good "no mess" craft for keeping little fingers busy...
Doesn't this pipe cleaner snowflake look pretty? Imagine a flurry of them decorating the tree...
You will need:
2 silver pipecleaners
3 blue pipecleaners
Cut the two silver pipe cleaners in half. Put one piece aside so you have 3. Twist these three pieces together in the centre so that you have a shape with six points (look at the photo above for help with this).
Cut the blue pipe cleaners in half and then in half again. You will have 12 pieces. Twist these on to the silver base to decorate your snowflake.
If you want to hang your snowflake, take the piece of silver pipe cleaner you put aside, fold in half and twist the ends to one of the snowflake points to make a loop
You can see how pretty these pipe cleaner snowflakes look in the window!
