This easy-to-make snowflake made from steel strips and mini lights! My husband saw it on LowesCreativeIdeas.com and decided to make it for our house. It was easy to make and very affordable too! He made it in a matter of minutes and now it hangs from a window in our house for everyone to see.
Step 1: Arrange the steel strips in a snowflake pattern as shown above.
Step 2: Connect the three strips together in the middle using a bolt, washer, lock, and nut. (Be careful as the edges are sharp – we suggest filing them if possible).
Step 3: Wrap with a string of clear mini lights — poking bulbs through the holes in the steel strips — then hang.
From start to finish this project cost us less than $30. If you purchase your lights after Christmas or on sale then it would be even less!
Thanks LowesCreativeIdeas.com and my husband Tim
