Sparkling Snowflakes
Create an indoor snowstorm with these sparkling snowflakes made with pipe cleaners.

  • Paintbrush
  • Pasta pieces of various sizes that can be threaded
  • 3 long pipe cleaners
  • White string (about 1 foot long)
  • Thumbtack or strong tape
Step 1
Twist Pipe Cleaners

Twist the centers of the three pipe cleaners together so that six pipe-cleaner arms fan out like a star.

Step 2
Thread Pasta Onto Pipe Cleaners

Thread pasta pieces onto each arm, leaving extra room at the ends to tie a loop. Loop the end of each arm by twisting the pipe cleaner.

Step 3
Attach String

Twist the end of the top arm around a piece of white string.

Step 4
Paint and Add Glitter
  • Paint your creation with white paint. While the paint is still wet, sprinkle on glitter.
