How to stiffen your Snowflake appliques to make
 into Ornaments.
What you need:
School Glue
Straight Pins
Glitter or Spray Glitter
Foam board
Crochet Snowflakes

Mix together equal parts of School Glue and Water.
I used 1/4 cup of each.

Dip The Snowflakes in the mixture till wet, but not soaked

 or drippy.

Lay them out to dry, pinning them in place for the shape

 you want.
Now let them dry 24 hours.
I place them on my dryer or out in the sun.

For Glitter: Sprinkle a little bit of glitter while they are still tacky.
Or Just use Glitter spray after they are dry.

I used Sparkle yarn so they don't need any glitter.
Once it is completely dry and glittered! Add a hanger.
