Decorate Your Windows with Crocheted Snowflakescomments (1) November 28th, 2008
Let it snow in your window-- no matter what the climate-- with crocheted snowflakes. One of my first projects was crocheted snowflake ornaments-- a little ambitious for the beginner (because of the tiny thread) but they are something I hang on my tree every year. I found some gorgeous variations at a craft sale last year, and this year I wanted to hang them in my window.
All I did was tie a string to each snowflake, then I tied all of the strings to a tension rod (this will only work if you have a deep window), which I then installed in the window. Voila! You can get a tension rod for a few dollars at your local hardware/home store. This way at the end of the season I can just slide them off and store them, no taping or weird hardware involved. I love to look out at them, especially when it's snowing outside.
If you want to crochet your own snowflakes, there is tons of inspiration on the web. Here are a few free pattern links to get you started:
