Were these perhaps inspired by the recent snowstorm in your area? Or maybe Old Man Winter saw these and got jealous – so he decided to show you who’s the Boss! LOL

Great job. May I make a couple of finishing suggestions? 1. Sprinkle a little glitter on the white paint while it dries. 2. Use stencils, calligraphy, or wood burning to add names or initials for personalized gifts (can include dates for special occasions). 3. If you have children/grandchildren allow them to finish their own snowflake with paint and glitter as a fun project with dad/grandpa.

Have fun with these and thanks for posting.

Thank you for the nice comments guys, and leafherder, thanks also for the finishing suggestions. I have some cherry, purpleheart scraps might try a few with those woods as well.

I have made several hundreds of these. All cut different.
I like to keep the look of wood, so I just spray them with clear Lacquer.

I made very large ones out of 2×10 and sprayed them with a thick clear paint and then covered them with glitter.
I connect 3 together with fishing line, and hang them on a tree outside for decoration.
People walk by and ask where I got them and I wind up selling them a set or two for there trees.
The large ones are about 6” in diameter and really look great spinning in the trees.
