That’s it! Your crochet snowflakes are all crocheted, and just need a little shaping and stiffening. To get your crochet snowflake to hold its shape, cover the piece with fabric stiffener (you may want to dilute it with a bit of water) and then squeeze out the excess. Next, shape your snowflake on a piece of cardboard covered in plastic wrap, and use pins to pull the snowflake into shape and hold it there as it dries. Once it is dry, it will be stiff and retain its shape.
All that’s left to do is tie a piece of thread or string through one of the ends of your snowflake, and then it’s all ready to hang.
Or tie onto a gift. Or string onto a garland. Or whatever you want to do with it!
