Now on to the project above. You can click on pictures for larger view. We don't get snow here on the Gulf Coast very often so I usually have to make my own snowflakes if I want to see them. I used a hurricane candle cover and set it onto a glass dessert plate filled with glass pebbles in shades of blue and white and glittered punched snowflakes. Inside the candle cover is a small candle votive.
I wrapped a wide blue satin wire edge ribbon around the hurricane cover using double sided tape and attached a separate bow to the front. The bow was the perfect place to show off a quilled snowflake that is embellished with clear crystals and pearls. Two smaller snowflakes dangle from it.
Along the ribbon I put smaller snowflakes and snowflake flowers made from shimmery pearly strips. The two layer snowflake flowers were made with 6 blue eccentric marquise with white V scrolls between them. Then a smaller 6 marquise white layer added on top. For the other version, I used blue V scrolls between the white layer. Add a pearl or crystal to the center. This would be pretty in any color combination!
