Hardening Directions

Crocheted_Snowflake_Ornaments_Step5.jpg

Step 1: In a shallow disposable bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of white glue and 1 tablespoon of water. Mix well and add your snowflake.

Step 2: Saturate the snowflake with the glue mixture. The snowflake should be covered, but not dripping. Squeeze any excess glue back into the bowl.

Step 3: Sprinkle glitter onto a small paper plate. Apply glitter to the snowflake by placing one flat side on top of the glitter. Turn the snowflake over to apply glitter to the other side. If you prefer less sparkle, you can also sprinkle the glitter on by hand or leave it off entirely.

Step 4: Cover your cork or foam board with wax paper, holding it in place with scotch tape or clips. Spread your glittered snowflake out on top. Using straight pins, stretch the stitches into shape and secure them in place, working back and forth between opposite sides to keep the shape even. Start with the longest pieces first, then work down to the shortest. Keep your shaped snowflake pinned until completely dry.

Step 5: Once dry, remove the pins and carefully pull the snowflake off of the wax paper. Add a loop of embroidery floss to your ornament for hanging, and you’re done!
