DIY Beaded Snowflake tutorial

Every year I make a few handmade decorations for my Christmas tree to fit in with my colour palette and theme, so this year to go with my 'Frosted fairy tale forest' theme I have made some elegant beaded snowflake ornaments using wire snowflake forms from Rico Design, I love how they do really tiny ones! The beaded snowflakes are easy to make and the colour and style possibilities are endless!

I chose to use mint and white beads and added plastic crystals to the centre for extra sparkle! Here's how you make beaded snowflakes...
