- Create an "X" with two pipe cleaners, then bending or twisting the wires to keep the shape in place. Add a third pipe cleaner to the shape, with the middle crossing over the axis, to create your base shape -- a six-point star.
- Cut a few pipe cleaners into small 3-inch pieces. Then twisty the individual pieces over the base shape to create a branching out snowflake shape, as pictured.
- Tie a long piece of twine around the top of your snowflake, and hang over a door, window or blank wall.
