Take a look at the simple materials and tools shown here.
I like using construction paper, but my red construction paper just wasn't deep or bright enough. Instead, I used a thin cardstock left over from another project.
The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Paper Doily Snowflake Ornament:
Print the Paper Doily Snowflake Ornament pattern.
Cut a red circle using the circle around the outside of the snowflake.
If you do not have a paper doily, cut a doily from regular, white paper using the scalloped shape on the pattern.
Lay the paper doily with its pretty side up.
Position the yarn ends in the middle of the doily.
Glue the red circle over the doily and the yarn ends.
Make sure the yarn ends are securely glued between the doily and the circle.
Cut the snowflake out of white paper.
Hold the pattern over the cut snowflake matching the shapes.
Use a paper piercer (or pin, needle, thumbtack, t-pin) to make pinholes in the snowflake using the pattern as a guide.
Make three holes in each point.
Make several pinholes across the lines in the center of the snowflake.
Be careful that the holes are not punched too closely together. If too close, they will cut the paper.
Center and glue the pinhole punched snowflake over the red circle.
Fast, fun and easy, the little Paper Doily Snowflake Ornament is finished and ready for display.
Of course, you could also add some sparkles for even more decoration.
Just a few simple materials and tools that are also inexpensive make this an easy and enjoyable project for all ages.
