This idea comes from our contributor Valerie McKeehan. Learn how to draw this snowflake design before attempting to draw the Elegant Snowflake or Ornate Snowflake for the "Let it Snow" Chalk-Art Sign.
Draw a circle on your chalkboard either freehand or by tracing around a circular object.
Add the arms of the snowflake by drawing 3, evenly-spaced, crisscrossing lines.
Erase your circle guide. This asterisk shape will be the starting point for all of our snowflakes.
Go over your lines multiple times with the chalk to thicken them.
Add small lines protruding from each side of all 6 snowflake arms at an angle.
Repeat step 5 underneath your previous lines with thinner, lighter strokes.
Add triangles where the arms intersect and finish with another tiny line off of each triangle.
Touch up any smudges with an eraser or damp sponge.
