I am not really a winter person, but I do really like snowflakes. And as much as I love decorating for Christmas, I love having decorations that can be up past Christmas. The house always looks so bare after Christmas when all the decorations are put away, so to be able to keep some 'winter' decorations up, helps me to keep the 'winter blues' away.
One of the very first things I pinned on Pinterest was a window decoration using ornaments. This year, I have been pinning some crochet snowflake projects and thought I could use the same concept as the ornaments, but use snowflakes instead.
So I used this snowflake pattern, but instead of making the garland, I made single snowflakes.
Then I gathered some pom poms, fishing line, a needle and a pair of scissors.
I tied a knot at the end of a length of fishing line and put this through a pom pom.
Then I threaded the fishing line through one of the snowflakes. To kind of keep the snowflakes and pom poms from slipping down the fishing line, I looped the fishing line around again and put the needle through the same spot. You can add as many pom poms and snowflakes to a length of fishing line that suits you. Then I made a loop at the top of the fishing line.
I placed tension rods in the window frame
Then using ornament hooks, I hung the lengths of snowflakes and pom poms onto the tension rods.
You can add as many lengths to your window as you like.
I just love the way it looks!
