DIY Ornaments!

I put up my Christmas tree on election night to keep my mind on happy things, and I decided to create some more fun things to decorate it with this year.  Below I created a video showing you how to create these fun little ornaments.

Supplies:

  • Straws 4 per each ornament
  • Scissors
  • Yarn
  • Wooden Beads
  • Bobby Pin

Check out my video on how to create this simple Christmas ornament using only straws and yarn, you can add beads to make them more unique!

How to:

First step is to cut each staw into 3 equal peices.  You can change the size of the straws to be as big or as small as you would like.  Just make sure all peices are equal lengths and cut about three feet of yarn.

Next string on 3 of the cut straws, and tie a knot to form a triangle.  All you are doing is forming triangles, it may seem a little complicated at first but once you get the hang of it, it will be super easy.

Now you will be adding two at a time to keep forming the triangles, you do this until you have one peice of straw left.

With the last peice you string it and tie it to the very first knot that you made and this will form the bottom of the ornament.  After that the top needs to be tied with an extra peice of yarn, this is the peice I added the beads to.  You do not need the beads but if you want them its easy to string them on with a bobby pin and create a loop on the end so it can hang easily on the tree.

Happy Crafting!
