This year I made nearly all the ornaments for our giant tree. I had this vision in my head or creating a new look for it, but without spend $5 per ornament to do it.
These clothespin snowflakes give you a lot of bang for your buck. I purchased 4 packs for regular clothes pins for $1 each ($4 total) and used some left over spray paint I already had. These ended up being good sized and I got about 20 ornaments out of those 4 packs. Breaking that down it's only $.20 each ornament!
It was a huge toss up between painting them white, or staining them a dark color. I am so glad I went with the white as they stand out very nice against the dark branches of the tree that way. Although I think staining them would be beautiful if you are using them on a garland or in a centerpiece.
All in all, I think this is towards to top of my favorite handmade ornaments I created this year!
I created a quick DIY video so you can see how to make these for your own Christmas tree!
