My kids love to make Christmas ornaments each year for our Christmas tree, and while I’m fairly OCD about the tree matching perfectly, I can control myself enough to let them put on a few random ornaments without going crazy.  (Though I’ll admit I do have to re-place the ornaments into their correct positions after the kids go to sleep). Hey – I haven’t been diagnosed so give me a break already!
 
I saw these snowflake pipe cleaner ornaments a few years back and thought they would make a fun family craft.  The kids had a blast making them and they were so easy and inexpensive to make (because I bought all the ingredients at Walmart!)that we made them again this year.  If you’re looking for a last minute craft to fill your family party, this just might do the trick!
 

Project Requirements:

Wire Cutters
Pipe Cleaners (Plain white and Iridescent or silver)
Crystal Plastic Beads

Step 1:  Cut 2 white pipe cleaners and 1 iridescent pipe cleaner in half

Step 2:  Twist the 4 white 1/2 size pipe cleaners together one full turn

Step 3:  Twist 1 iridescent pipe cleaner on at a time around the white pipe cleaners, alternating two white, one iridescent

Step 4:  Add crystal beads to white pipe cleaners as desired

Step 5:  Kink white pipe cleaners and twist ends together

 

Enjoy!


About Amy

Finding amazing Walmart Deals through price match strategies and coupon organization techniques has always given me an extreme coupon high! It’s truly a mental rush to leave the store with a shopping cart overflowing with great Wally World money makers, freebies, discount sale items, and with my grocery budget still in tact! My passion for bargain shopping has always come hand in hand with helping other deal seekers save money and become more financially secure, and all while still maintaining our integrity. With over 18 years experience, 3 websites, managing the largest deal website in Utah, and thousands of hours spent combing the grocery aisles, I know a great deal when I see one.
