  • Rip out pages from your magazine or newspaper. Fold and cut six to ten snowflakes. (If you can't remember how to fold and cut snowflakes, check out this tutorial.)
  • Cut three pieces of yarn/ribbon to the same length.
  • Tie the three pieces of ribbon onto the embroidery hoop, equidistant from each other.
  • Gather the three ends. Tie a very loose knot midway up the three pieces of yarn. With one hand, hold the embroidery hoop down on a flat surface. With the other, gently pull at the knot. This will help to keep the three pieces of yarn the same length. Pull the knot tight.
  • Hang embroidery hoop from doorway with the pushpin. Makes sure that the hoop is hanging straight. If not, readjust lengths of yarn/ribbon.
  • Tie six to ten varying lengths of yarn/ribbon around exterior of embroidery hoop. You can also tie one piece from the middle knot.
  • Scotch tape corner of each snowflake to end of each piece of yarn/ribbon.
  • Rehang your snowflake chandelier around a light fixture, in your favorite corner, or above your dining room table.
  • Happy holiday decorating!
