A Giant Farmhouse Winter Snowflake is Inexpensive
This giant farmhouse snowflake only costs a few dollars to create. You will love the way it looks in your home! All you need is a few pieces of wood,and some glue to create!
Customize the Size of Your Wood Snowflake
It’s easy to customize the size of the wood snowflake you create! I used pre-cut balsam wood from Lowes. Each piece is 24-inches long. But you can use whatever length wood you want! Make a huge one for your porch! Make small ones to sit on shelves in your kitchen. It’s up to you!
The Secret to Making a Giant Farmhouse Wood Snowflake
It’s all about the angles. I figured out the angles and that’s all you need to know to create this snowflake design. There are three main pieces of the snowflake. One piece is uncut. The other two pieces have angles that create the other arms of the snowflake. One arm has two 45-degree angles. The other has two cuts on each side of the arms that are each 22-degrees and meet at a point.
How to Cut the Pointed Snowflake Arm
The trickiest part of the project is cutting the two snowflake arms that have a point in the middle. What you want to do is cut the entire piece of wood in half. Then take each of those two pieces of wood and cut each side at 22-degree, creating a point in the middle of the end of the wood.
Cut the Snowflake Ends
Each snowflake arm has two ends. Cut wood at 4 inch sections. Then cut each end of the 4-inch piece of wood at 45-degrees, parallel to each other. Each piece of wood has angles that match.
Glue Farmhouse WInter Snowflake Together
Now flip the snowflake over and put it on parchment or newspaper and glue the cut pieces together. You can use wood glue, E6000 or even hot glue. Note — I used E6000 and still had to supplement with hot glue. Wood glue would probably hold better. To make the joints sturdier you can glue a piece of wood or paper over the joint to give it a little more stability.
