These glimmering oversize ornaments seem to be falling from the sky. Each is made by hand-twisting rope lights, using our template as a guide. Hang them from their cords (disguised with ribbon) at varying heights along a porch or under the eaves of the house.
Plug in lights for 5 minutes; place on a flat surface. Place 1 end of light at base of a snowflake arm, and trace arm, fastening lights with zip ties at base and neck of the "bowling pin" shape. Repeat.
Attach first and sixth arms together with zip tie. Hide remaining cord by weaving it up the top arm, securing with zip ties. Hang with ribbon.
