Have you ever worked with clothespins? I love clothespins projects. Growing up in Eastern Europe they were crafting materials to go to all the time. We made people out of them , we decorated containers , made chairs and of course made snowflakes. I have some documented on my blog and YouTube channel so make sure to check them HERE

Steps to make clothespins 3D snowflake
- remove clips from your clothespins
- glue with wood glue or hot glue back of your clothes pins to create X
- add additional clothespins into spaces
Start glueing wider portion to create X shape
- take 2 half clothes pins and hot glue them on to a center of your star as is shows below with flat portion down
- take glued clothespins and glue it right in the center where half clothespins touch
- add glued clothespins to the side and star to fill one side of the snowflake. Make sure to watch Video LIVE HERE
