Decorating for winter is so much fun especially when you get to bring the snow indoors while staying toasty warm!

To celebrate winter I made these easy DIY Yarn Snowflakes:

Make 4 of these wired bamboo sticks in total.

Hot glue the center of each of these wired bamboo sticks, one on top of the other, to form a snowflake shape.

Wrap yarn around the middle 3- 4 times then wind the yarn around each of the snowflake ‘arms’ until the entire snowflake is wrapped.  Wind 3 times around the middle, tie the yarn in a knot and cut the yarn.
