Six Point Snowflake Ring Ornament is the 6th in my "Ringing In Christmas" ornament series. Each ornament is made by crocheting around a 2" plastic ring.
A few have left comments saying they are having a hard time finding these 2" plastic rings. I usually get mine at Joann's or Hobby Lobby, and they are usually in the same area as the crochet hooks and knitting needles, although I have also found them in the sewing dept. They are also called "cabone rings".
And Cathy left this helpful comment: "Instead of buying 2" rings, I use drapery rings. They already have a hole on them in which to add an ornament hook, ribbon or other type of hanger. Plus, if you go to the thrift store, they are really cheap! I just purchased a bag of 25 for a quarter!"
And thank you for all the nice comments, I love hearing from you! Many of the comments are coming thru as a "no reply-comment", which means I can't reply to you. So even if I haven't been able to reply, please know I appreciate your comments very much.
