You will need 4 blue glittery, pipe cleaners to create one snowflake. Cut two in half and use three of the four half pieces to make the six points.
Wrap the centers together to secure. If you plan to frame the snowflake, make sure it will fit in the size frame you want.
Add the points by cutting the half in half again and cutting one entire piece into fourths, giving you six pieces. These will be on the end of the points. Wrap the centers around the points about 1-2″ from the end. Repeat to create another point on the end and then all six points.Use wire cutters to trim the lengths and even them up.
In a microwave safe bowl, add 2 cups water. Boil and then add 1/3 cup borax. Stir until dissolved. Pour into bowl with snowflake. Repeat until your snowflake is completely covered with the solution (I repeated 3 times to yield 6 cups). Set your bowl in a safe, level place for a few days until the borax attaches to the snowflake.
Remove from the bowl and place on a flat surface (I used a plate) to dry. When dry, add fishing line to hang on your tree or, make a frame to display your snowflake all winter long.
