how to stiffen crocheted snowflakes: mix 1 part sugar with 2 parts water in a bowl and bring to boil, let it cool and add you crocheted pieces. Drain them and pin them out onto a flat surface. I use an old cardboard box that I covered with clear foil/clear plastic folder. You can use three sides of the cardboard box, so every time you pin out your snowflakes onto one side, there are no snowflakes on the bottom side that would get “crushed”

so what do you do with your million and trillion of crocheted snowflakes? hang them into your tree: add a hanger (you could use the yarn end for this)
