There are so many fabulous ideas out there. Here are just ten ...

Bottle Bottom Snowflakes from Artesan

BOTTLE BOTTOM SNOWFLAKES
from Artesan

CLICK HERE to visit the original site - PLEASE NOTE it is not in English

Although it is not Christmas and the website that features this project is not in English it is such an effective idea that we have included it any way.

You can buy the small metal jump rings from craft shops and also hardware stores like B&Q. Use metallic acrylic paint to do your snowflake detail on the plastic bottle.

Take care if you have children as the edge where you have cut the bottom away from the bottle may have sharp bits.

Garden centres sell metal trees at Christmas time that would look fabulous with these snowflakes hanging from them but I particularly love the wooden version in the picture.

I really must make the effort to make this for Christmas.
