Snowflake Ornaments

Have you ever made snowflakes out of paper when you were a kid?

It’s was such a simple winter craft and fun to make too. All that was needed was a piece of paper and a pair of scissors.

The snowflakes were made by folding a regular piece of paper in half a few times and using scissors, we cut triangles and other designs in the paper.

Finally, we would unfold the paper and see the pretty snowflake design we created?

These snowflake ornaments are inspired by those paper snowflakes and are made practically the same way.

How To Make Snowflake Wonton Ornaments

We use wonton wrappers which can be found in the refrigerated section of your grocery.

These little wrappers aren’t as big as paper and won’t fold as many times as a sheet of paper will, but it’s the same idea.

You can find the recipe and full instructions HERE.

You can either bake the wonton ornaments or fry them. Either way, you’ll end up with lovely decorations.

Step 1

Fold the wonton wrappers in half, fold them again and then begin cutting out little triangles or designs.

After cutting out pretty snowflake designs and unfolding the wonton ornament, fry them in hot oil or bake them in the oven.
