Are you getting ready for the Christmas decorating to begin? We are in the midst of it all at my home. It helps to plan a Christmas party for the first Friday in December, so all will be decorated by Friday at my house. This year, I have been making a few new ornaments to add to my family tree. I love neutral colors and textures, and that holds true in my Christmas decorating as well. Today I am going to show you how to create these simple, inexpensive, and beautiful Snow Tipped and Stained Wooden Snowflake Ornaments

Supplies Needed for Snow Tipped and Stained Wooden Snowflake Ornaments:


Step One:


Using the foam paint brush, apply the gel stain to the unfinished wooden disc. Rub gently with a cotton cloth to remove any excess gel stain. Allow to dry fully.

Step Two:


Paint the wooden snowflakes with the Cottonball DecoArt Multi Surface Satin paint. Apply to both sides and allow to dry fully.

Step Three:


Apply 2 coats of the DuraClear satin varnish to the stained wooden disc. This really brings out the grain and gives the stain a simple shine but not too glossy. Perfect for the light to catch on the Christmas tree. Allow to dry fully.

Step Four:


Using a stencil brush, apply the DecoArt Snow-Tex to the front side of the small snowflake. Apply the Snow-Tex to the outer tips of the larger snowflake. I did not put any Snow-Tex on the center of the larger snowflake because the stained disc will be applied there. Follow the directions on the Snow-Tex and allow to dry fully.

Step Five:


Place a screw eye in the top of the wooden disc by simply screwing it into the rim of the disc.

Step Six:


Use the glue gun to attache the small snowflake to the front of the wooden disc. Then use the glue gun to attach the disc to the larger snowflake. Tie a small loop of jute twine through the screw eye.


I just love the scale of this ornament. It is larger than most and makes such a beautiful statement. You could add a few of these to your tree or even in a garland over the fireplace or down a staircase. These mixed with my Burned Wood Snowflake Ornaments will compliment each other so well.
