How To Make Felt Silver Snowflakes

Felt silver snowflakes are enchanting creations that bring the beauty of winter indoors. Crafted with meticulous care and attention to detail, these delicate ornaments capture the essence of a frosty winter's day. Made from soft, shimmering silver felt, they glisten like freshly fallen snow in the soft glow of holiday lights.

The Magical Process of Crafting Felt Silver Snowflakes

Start Making Our Felt Silver Snowflakes

Step One — Prepare The Snowflakes

Enlarge the snowflake templates by 160% and trace them onto thick tracing paper. Iron the iron-on fabric onto the reverse side of the ivory felt.

Transfer the motifs from the tracing paper onto the iron-on fabric. Carefully cut out each snowflake using embroidery scissors.

Step Two — Snowflake 1

Using silver perle cotton and a chenille needle, embroider the outline of the larger star with straight stitches.

Next, fill in the star's center with glitter gel using a fine-tipped paintbrush. Apply the gel to each small ball at the points of the star and the ends of the snowflake. Allow it to dry for three hours, then apply a second layer of glitter gel.

Leave it to dry overnight, and then apply a layer of gouache varnish to all the glittered areas.

Step Three — Snowflake 2

Using a fine-tipped paintbrush, paint a very thin layer of glitter gel onto the surface of the snowflake. Allow it to dry, and then apply a light coat of gouache varnish.

Once dry, outline the snowflake with a thin line of white relief paint, adding a few dots inside the snowflake. Leave it to dry overnight.

Activate the paint by pressing a hot iron on the reverse side of the snowflake for 15 seconds.

Step Four — Snowflake 3

Use silver perle cotton to embroider a star at the base of each arm of the snowflake using small straight stitches. Fill in the petals in the center of the snowflake with glitter gel using a fine-tipped paintbrush.

Finish by applying a very thin layer of gel around the outside of the snowflake. Leave it to dry overnight, and then apply gouache varnish to the glittered areas.
