This beaded snowflake makes a fantastic Christmas ornament. Because this ornament is crocheted onto a foundation of wire, it holds its shape on its own; you don't need to hassle with starching or glue to stiffen it.
In order to use this snowflake as a Christmas tree ornament, you will need one item that's not included on the materials list: a wire ornament hanger.
The snowflake and free crochet pattern were designed by Amy Solovay.

This cute crocheted ornament is shaped like a Christmas tree, and it's almost as much fun to decorate as its full-sized inspiration.
