Beaded Snowflakes – Easy Tutorials

Here are some easy ways to make beaded snowflakes.

Wire frame beaded snowflake

Cut out 3 equal length wires. Remember, a snowflake has 6 spokes.

Make a metal frame for your snowflake by twisting these 3 long metal wires by the middle.

Add beads on this frame – you can use big and small beads for this.

At the tip make a closed loop to protect the beads from falling off. Use a plier or a blunt scissors for this.

You can add a flat bead to the middle to hide the twisted wire. 

You can further embellish your snowflake with more strings of beads between the spokes of the snowflake.

Add a string of seed beads connecting the rays, somewhere at the middle of each ray. Ensure that the string of beads is just enough to cover the distance between the rays of your snowflake.

Make the same flowers again and again till you have 6 big beads and 6 small flowers. (You will have to add one big bead singly at last to get the numbers right). Now take up the needle through the first bead , joining the round shape.

You can stop at that or continue adding big or small beads on top the same way. I just added one big bead on top of the flower shapes.
