This rustic floating snowflake ornament will look so pretty hanging on your Christmas tree. The snowflake is hanging in the center from fishing line so it looks like it is suspended in mid air.
This floating snowflake ornament was made with the Stampin Up Flurry of Wishes stamp set and the coordinating Snow Flurry Punch. The Snow Flurry Punch was retired with the release of the 2017 Stampin Up annual catalog, but is currently available at a deep discount on the clearance rack. So grab it while you can! It’s much easier than having to fussy cut the snowflakes!

Rustic Floating Snowflake Ornament Instructions
- Cut a 9″ piece of the 1/8 inch gold ribbon. Fold in half and tie a knot in the end. This will form the ornament hanging loop.
- Tie a bow with the Very Vanilla Lace Trim.
- Using Night of Navy Ink on Whisper White cardstock, stamp the 1-1/2″ snowflake from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set four times.
- Optional – heat emboss the snow flakes or stamp them on white shimmery paper to add some shine.
- Use the Snow Flurry paper punch (retired, but currently available in the Stampin Up Clearance Rack!) to cut out the stamped snowflakes.
- Place a snowflake shape on a scoring board, lining a top and bottom point with one of the ridges. Lightly score the snowflake down the middle. Fold the snowflake in half with the stamped sides facing inward. Repeat for the remaining snowflakes.
- Apply Tombow liquid glue to the back of half of one of the snowflakes. Press half of another snowflake to the glue, moving around until they are lined up. Use mini clothespins to clamp the snowflakes together as the glue dries. Repeat for the remaining 2 snowflakes. Allow the snowflakes to dry.
- Cut a 12 inch length of fishing line. Attach to the wood ring with a dot of glue and wind several times around the ring to secure. Run the fishing line down the middle to the other side of the ring. Run it around the ring several times and secure with hot glue. Trim any excess fishing line.
- Pull the fishing line over to the other side of the ring and secure with a dab of hot glue. Wind the fishing line around the ring several times, going through that hot glue. Trim any excess line.
- Cut a 40″ length of burlap ribbon.
- Add a dab of hot glue near where the fishing line is attached to the ring. Stick one end of the burlap ribbon in the hot glue to secure and start winding the burlap ribbon around the wood ring. Every so often, add a dot of hot glue to help hold the ribbon in place. On mine I did a dot of hot glue about every 3 times around the ring.
- When you get to the other side where the fishing line is attached, stop winding the burlap ribbon and hot glue the hanging loop to the top of the wood ring. Continue wrapping the burlap ribbon around the wood ring, going through the ornament hanging loop to catch it.
- Continue wrapping the wood ring with burlap ribbon until you get back to the start. Trim any excess and secure the end of the ribbon to the ring with hot glue.
- Run a thin line of hot glue down the joining line of one of the snowflake pairs. Press the fishing line into it, with the snowflake positioned in about the center of the fishing line.
- Add Tombow glue to the back of the snowflake pair with the fishing line and press the other snowflake pair into it, lining up all the points. Use mini clothespins to clamp the snowflakes together until they dry. You should now have a 3D snowflake with 4 sides and fishing line running down the center.
- Add a dot of hot glue to the center of each snowflake face. Press a rhinestone into the glue.
- Use a dot of hot glue to attach the lace bow to the top of your ornament in front of the hanging loop.
