This idea comes from our contributor Valerie McKeehan. Learn how to draw this snowflake design after attempting to draw the Simple Snowflake, then move on to the Ornate Snowflake for the "Let it Snow" Chalk-Art Sign.
Begin with your basic snowflake shape and add open circles to the ends of each arm.
Add triangles where the arms intersect and fill them with a small dot.
Add shapes resembling leaves the whole way down each arm, varying the width of the leaves to get thicker in the center and then tapering back.
Fill in the leaves with chalk.
Add a dashed line detail coming out of each center triangle.
