You can finish it off with a diamond shape in the middle of the snowflake but cutting a board at 45 degrees all the way around.
You can finish the pallet snowflakes however you choose. Some ideas are to leave them natural, stain them, paint them, dry brush them and even add some glitter to them! Or do one in each style!
