It’s starburst-meets-snowflake with this clever ornament design by Britt from Interestosity!  A little glue and epsom salt give it a sparkly,  crystal-ish look at the tips of the cotton swabs.  You could even add glitter for extra snow-like sparkle!  They were inspired by some very expensive ornaments from a high-end home decor store.  Up close you can tell what they are, but at a distance they look totally chic.  The project is easy enough for kids to handle as well!  [how to make cotton swab ornaments]
