Tip: Wear disposable gloves when working with spray glue to avoid a sticky mess.
Step 1: Lay some wax paper down on your work surface and begin by gluing together miniature marshmallows in a snowflake shape. Fill in any gaps between marshmallows with extra glue. Let dry.
Step 2: In a well-ventilated area, place cardboard on the surface you will be spraying on. Liberally spray one side of each snowflake (this will be the back of your ornament). Move to a wax paper-lined surface to dry completely.
Step 3: Fold ribbon in half and glue both ends to the back of the ornament using spray glue. Trim cardboard to fit and glue each piece to the back of each point on snowflake to create a spoke pattern. Spray glue to secure and move snowflakes to a new wax paper-lined surface to dry completely.
