Doily Snowflake Ornament Free Tutorial by Christie Hurst of A Lemon Squeezy Home

Any time during the year when I see something cute that I can use for the holidays I always bookmark it or print off a copy for my holiday decorating "to do" folder.  Then just before the holidays I decide which project I'm going to do that year. This year I'm bookmarking the doily snowflake ornament tutorial by Christie Hurst.

Here's what Christie had to say about her tutorial: I posted this on Craft Snob a couple weeks ago and thought I better hurry and post anything Christmas related here while they can be used.

I’m going to show you how extremely quick and easy this doily ornament is.  My 6 year old said it looks like a snowflake, so we’ll call it the Doily Snowflake Ornament.  I think it’s a great starting point for many beautiful things you can imagine with this ornament.

Just give credit where it is due! Happy crafting!

Here's what Alisa had to say about her tutorial: Living in Southern California it is a challenge for me to get into the spirit of traditional fall decor. Though it is raining today, typically this time of year is beautiful- like hang out at the beach beautiful! So when it comes to October/Halloween decor I like to create things that actually feel more summery and will go with the airy cottage feel of our home. I decided that this year I would create pretty little pumpkins in pastel colors full of detail and design.
