This project requires very few materials, but you will be stunned by how beautiful the results are. This ornament will seriously give store-bought snowflakes a run for their money.

Clothespins are already a big crafting staple: they can hold things together in a super cute way and give any project a bit of a rustic twist.

In this case, they can also be glued together to create little snowflakes that look perfect hanging all over a Christmas tree.
