This was inspired by http://www.littlethingsbringsmiles.com/2010/12/rustic-snowflakes.html which i found on pinterest while looking for twig snowflakes.  Mine are twigs from the backyard, clipped/snapped to length and hot-glued together.  I spray painted them with gloss white (happened to have rust-oleum) and sprinkled martha stewart glitter while the paint was wet. I used both "crystal" (clear/aurora) and "white gold" (silver) glitter.  The white gold was more visible but I liked both together. I did a second coat of krylon clear glaze (again whatever i found in our basement) and put glitter on that time also.

The flakes are delicate and i had to repair a few of them as the door swinging shut would jar them.  They are wired onto a plain purchased evergreen wreath along with some battery-powered rice lights. Happy Holidays to everyone! It's so exciting when one of the projects in your mind actually makes it into real life!!  I wish i had had the patience to make more of them. Maybe next year.

How sweet!  I like the variety of snowflake styles.

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
