DIY Wood Bead Snowflake Ornament

Handmade ornaments are our favorite things to make for the holidays. Every year we come up with new ideas and techniques for ornaments.

Over the past few years we have made silhouettes as ornaments, used embroidery hoops to showcase favorite fabrics and made moon phase shapes using air-dry clay. And our love of indigo is strong with our favorite marbled indigo ornaments!
