2. punch snowflakes out of 12×12 glittered paper (we punched a total of 145 snowflakes)

 

3. cut 5 strands of 12″ long fishing wire, 5 strands of 18″ long fishing wire, and 5 strands of 24″ fishing wire

4. line up your snowflakes side by side (one glitter side up and one glitter side down)
{outer ring we cut 5 strands of fishing wire 12″ long and strung 2 sets of snowflakes ~ total of 4 snowflakes hot glued back to back per strand.
middle ring we cut 5 strands of fishing wire 18″ long and strung 3 set of snowflakes ~ total of 9 snowflakes hot glued back to back per strand.
inner ring we cut 5 strands of fishing wire 24″ long and strung 4 sets of snowflakes ~ total of 16 snowflakes hot glued back to back per strand.}

 

5. put a glue dot in the middle of the glitter side down snowflakes and lay the fishing line over top of the glue dot to secure the line
6. put a dab of hot glue over the fishing line and place the glitter side up snowflake on top to create a two sided glittered snowflake

7. continue doing this until you have 5 stands of 2 snowflakes, 5 strands of 3 snowflakes and 5 strands of 4 snowflakes

8. onto the outer ring you will tie your 5 stands of 2 snowflakes spread out around the wire hanger, the middle ring will get 5 strands of 3 snowflakes spread out evenly and the inner ring will get 5 strands of 4 snowflakes tie on spread out evenly

9. after the wire is tied on put a small dab of hot glue on top of the wire to keep it in place

10. lay the chandelier down and cut 4 even strands of ribbon {measuring how low you want the chandelier to hang from the ceiling} tie one piece on, go directly across the chandelier and tie another piece…turn the chandelier and repeat so that the chandelier will hang evenly
