25 Days of Crafts! Day 17: Chenille Rod Snowflakes

Another easy ornament craft. Cut two pieces of chenille rod 3 inches long and one 3 1/2 inches long (the extra length will be bent as a hook). You'll need small clear beads, plastic or glass, and some pliers. Wrap the three lengths together at the midpoint, so all 6 sides are the same length accept for the side that will hook to the tree. Begin adding beads. You might need the pliers to help you move the beads down. Push the first ones down toward the center to secure the knot. Once you have added beads, fold over the ends so beads can't fall off. Bend the end of the longest piece to form a hook to attach to the branches. This is a project older kids can do (7+), but they may need some assistance.
