Snowflakes in Summer

snowflake 2016It’s June… so you are thinking about snowflakes. Right?

Maybe not.

Today in Houston the “feels like” temperature is 106 degrees F. I certainly wouldn’t mind a few snowflakes. And in truth, I do start to think about making them this time of year. I hope to have enough in inventory to sell in my Etsy shop this Christmas and holiday season.

Several years ago I published a post with a link to a tutorial on making fused glass snowflakes. Recently I came across an even better tutorial on Pinterest. If you are making snowflakes, this post has a good illustration on how to cut and assemble the pieces efficiently. I might even consider doing a class on these. Let me know if you are interested.

  1. Thanks for sharing Margot. I’m making snowflakes in the UK already too (and robins, rudolfs and Christmas trees!).

  2. Margot, I have been fusing snowflakes for months now as well and ironically, just hand-delivered a few to my sister just outside of Houston. I do like the delicate look of your flakes. Best of luck to you in the upcoming holiday season!

    • And to you! Next time you visit your sister let me know. We’ll do lunch. I don’t often get to talk with fellow fusers. 🙂 I’m on the north east side of town.
