I love making Christmas decorations and crafting things from Dollar Tree items so when I saw some people in a Dollar Tree Facebook group making a Snowflake from Dollar Tree Clothes Hangers I knew I had to give it a try!
Our house looks good with over sized decorations for the holidays but I don’t like spending hundreds of dollars on seasonal decor. That’s why I love this project so much! Making this Snowflake from Dollar Tree Clothes Hangers only cost me $5 and it was really easy to create.
Let me show you How to make a Snowflake from Dollar Tree Clothes Hangers!
What you’ll need for this DIY Dollar Tree Plastic Clothes Hanger Snowflake:
- 16 White Clothes Hangers
- 1-3 large flat snowflake ornaments
- 8 smaller flat snowflake ornaments
- Bow or Ribbon to make a bow (Optional)
- Hot Glue Sticks and Glue Gun
I got everything for this project at my local Dollar Tree.
The clothes hangers at Dollar Tree come in packs of 7 so I bought 2 packs and then used two hangers that I had at home so I didn’t have to buy a third pack.
I already had the hot glue gun and glue sticks at home, so this Dollar Tree Snowflake Clothes Hanger Craft ended up costing me $5 to make.
Making a giant snowflake from Dollar Store clothes racks:
Match your clothes hangers into groups of two with the hooks facing the same direction.
There is a slight gap there but you can either tie it together to just hold it together while you hot glue it. I just held mine together in sections as I glued it.
Run a few lines of hot glue down the enter and glue the hangers together in pairs. Don’t worry if the glue is visible because this is going to be the back of the snowflake.
Once all of the hanger pairs are glued together and dry, it’s time to assemble.
4 pairs of hangers are needed for the base of this giant snowflake. Arrange them in a cross shape with the hooks pointing away from the center of the snowflake.
Add hot glue where they all meet in the center in these 4 spots to secure them together. Do not glue the hooks together!
You’ll need 4 pairs of hangers for the 2nd row. These hangers will go in between the hangers on the first row.
Make sure the hooks are facing away from the center and wiggle the 2nd row of hangers in between the hooks from the first row.
Now hot glue those together to secure them. Don’t worry if some of them dont’ fit in there perfectly. We will be covering them up with snowflakes.
This is what the center of the snowflake should look like. Make sure to add hot glue to all of the spots where the hangers are touching for extra stability!
Once the snowflake base it complete and dry, flip it over so that all of the glue is on the backside.
I got these small flat snowflake ornaments at Dollar Tree. There were 10 in a pack but we only need 8 for this project.
Hot glue 1 small flat snowflake ornament to each spot where the hooks from the first row meet the hangers from the second row.
Next, are the big snowflake ornaments. These also came from Dollar Tree and they came 3 to a pack. You don’t have to use all three of them but I did to bulk up the center of this giant snowflake.
Hot glue the first big snowflake ornament onto the center of the giant snowflake by adding a few dabs of hot glue to the hangers in the center and carefully pressing the snowflake onto them.
Add the last two big snowflake ornaments by adding some hot glue to the center of the big snowflake ornament and stacking them on top of each other.
Last but not least, finish off the giant snowflake with a bow.
I got this ribbon from the Dollar Tree and made a bow using a tutorial from Olivia’s Romantic Home on YouTube. FYI, her bows look way better than mine but I didn’t want to spend $7 on a pre-made bow haha.
Then find an awesome spot to hang your giant homemade snowflake and show it off!
I love how this turned out and it’s a super great Christmas decorations and craft for only $5. I’m going to make a few more of these and hang them up outside for the holidays!
If you make one of these I’d love to see it!

I also watched this DIY video on how to assemble the snowflake if you want to watch a video from the Midnight Crafter. She did hers a little different than how I did it but you can still see how it’s put together.
