We seem to have a one track mind around here. Christmas, Christmas, Christmas. And way more craftiness than any other time of year. I am ready to start painting a dresser, or redoing these cute little chairs sitting in my living room waiting for a face lift!
Every year my family does the 25 days of Christmas and one of our traditional activities is to make snowflakes. I decorate with snowflakes every Christmas, and since moving to the Northwest my paper snowflakes are usually the only snowflakes flying around (unlike the rest of this country!).
Lisa and I have made many snowflake ornaments for the shop--some of which I have made in the past with my girls, but this year I decided to try a new one. . .
Origami snowflakes. . .
Then I made them into a mobile.
I have visions of hanging it above a table set with white ironstone. I am even in the process of sewing a set of white ruffled placemats to go with that vision. If I pull it all together in reality like the lovely picture in my mind I will take a picture of it and share it with you.
In the meantime, if you want to try your hand at these snowflakes, and are direction challenged like I am (seriously, have you tried to read an origami diagram?), you can find a youtube instructional video here. Or you could try this snowflake (I am trying that one next).
