Design Tips: How To Make Your Own Custom Background Pattern for Your Website or Monitor

I designed a new background image for my blog last night. 

If you take a careful look at the background image of this blog you will see small grey snowflakes on a black background.  The image above shows the background magnified 6 times. 

I like a black background on my blog page. However, I wanted something for the winter holidays. 

I used the background generator over at Pattern Cooler to do this. The actual png pattern generated is this 130 x 130 pixel square below.

Pattern Cooler lets you design backgrounds in an infinite number of sizes and colors. You can see the color selection I was given here:

Pattern Cooler is a fun web site. I recommend you try it if you like online design:
