How do you guys plan on keeping the snowflakes on the roof?

I will be utilizing a small gauge wire attached to the top and the bottom of each snowflake.  I have tile roofing so the top wire will be wrapped around the peak tile on the roof and the bottom wire attached to the facia part of the roof with a hook.  This will keep everything flat and tight so the wind doesn't move any of them.

I have 10  of the 42 inch snowflakes from target also....I zip tied 4   18" pieces of rebar to the back, in a square, and they didn't move an inch the entire season. Just layed them on the roof and was goodto go!   That was a new piece last year, and people loved them.

I think if I tried the rebar they would slide off. (tile roof)

I had a dozen hand made incan snowflakes last year.  I'm planning on adding 4 more for this year, I'd love to do more but don't have the channels. Even with 128 for this year I don't want to give up any more for snowflakes.  As far as attaching them I just I welded a bracket on mine which I then bolted to 1/4" rod which was welded to a main 3/8" center rod.  They are then attached to the eve using a bracket and deck screws.  You can see them on the side of my house.
