I was on Studio 5 today, and didn't get time to share this lovely borax snowflake,
so I thought I would share it now. I will share my Studio 5 clip here on my blog tomorrow.

Have you seen these borax snowflakes?
They are all over pinterest.
I think I am in love.
They are SO pretty, and SO easy to make!

I really wish my photography skills were up to par,
as far as catching the beauty of the crystals.

They are beautiful, and really sparkly!

Your kids will be amazed as these snowflakes crystallize over night!

You will need:

  • Pint sized glass bottle
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Borax
  • Yarn or string
  • Water


    1. Boil your water
    2. Shape your pipe cleaners into whatever shape you want.
    3. Tie a string to your pipe cleaner, and loop around your pencil
    4. Dump 1/3 cup borax into your bottle
    5. Pour boiling water in, and fill to within one inch of the top.
    6. Put your snowflake in hanging from the pencil
    7. Wait about 4 hours or overnight and you will have beautiful sparkly snow flakes!

You could do this with your kids in the morning, and by the afternoon, have a beautiful snowflake!

These would be pretty for more than just Christmas too. You could hang them up all winter.

Have a Happy and Creative Day!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is beautiful and a great use of boric acid powder. I can see that it glimmered great in the windows during the winter. Great way to light up the house during the gloomy months.
