Looking for a sweet simple modern craft for the kids this holiday? Then consider this yarn star ornament. Made with just a few supplies.
With just a few simple items from the dollar store, you can make super cute yarn star ornaments that make great gifts.
We love the idea of making simple ornaments from a few small items you may have at home. Some other ornaments we made are our jingle bell wreath, tree trunk ornament, and our easy wine cork snowflake ornament.
Christmas Tree Ornaments
Hello friends. How many of you have gotten your tree? We were planning on going last night, but with the rain, we've put it off another night.
Fingers crossed tomorrow's the day.
In the meantime, I have to confess that we have a fake little beauty that we took over from my Mom last year that we've put up in the kitchen. I do have to say, I'm pretty excited about our faux girl. She's so full of potential and I get to decorate her however I want! YAY!
While I was thinking about ornaments, I keep thinking of simple but modern.
While out at the Dollar Store (one of my favs) I came across this little star sunglasses and three star bracelets.I immediate thought... OH MY GOSH, I'm totally making these bracelets into ornaments.
What We Used to Make the yarn stars
- Plastic Star Bracelets
- Brown Yarn
- White Yarn
- White Glue
- Fishing Line (optional)
Using some extra yarn I had, I just got three star shaped ornaments and some groovy looking glasses for little missy for $1. One could even say, that I made each ornament for a little more then a quarter... CHEAP... I LOVE IT!!!
I found this beautiful light brown yarn that almost looks like burlap twine. It is less than 2 dollars at the craft store for a large roll. I'm not hip on the yarn lingo, but whatever they call the big roll, its one of those! SCORE.
Variation To This Ornament Craft
There are many different variations to this simple craft project. I made it with a simple modern look of white and brown, but a colorful versions would be just as fun.
Simply replace the brown yarn with any and all colors of yarn you have.
How to Make these Easy Star Ornament Craft
Start with the brown yarn. Simply tie a knot in the corner of the star.
Then start to wrap the yarn around the bracelet making sure the yarn is taut. If you have an end piece from the knot, make sure to place it along the bracelet and cover it with the yarn.
Cover the entire star with the brown yarn.
Tie the end in a knot and then cut the end of the yarn as close to the star as possible.
I then use a dot of white glue to seal the end in place. You could also use a hot glue gun and add a dot of the hot glue. It is your preference.
The next step is to wrap the white yarn. We started it at the middle curve of the star and tied the knot the same way we started with the brown yarn.
Wrap the white yarn around until you hit the other side of the star as where you started. Tie off the end and secure it with the dot of glue too.
In order to hand it, we used a piece of fishing line. Using a simple piece of yarn works just as well.
Cut a piece of your yarn or fishing line approximately 3 to 4 inches. Tie the two ends together in a knot.
Wrap the loop around the top part of the ornament and place the knot through the loop you created with the fishing line and it will create a knot.
Uses for Yarn Wrapped Star Ornaments
These sweet star ornaments are great as simply ornaments on your tree.
They also make for great Christmas gifts. Homemade gifts some of my favorite.
Gift wrapping and using ornaments as some present flare is also a fun use for ornaments. I am of the camp, that a present cannot have too much flare!
We hope you like this craft as much as we do. It is always fun to see our crafts in the wild. If you make these, please send us a picture so we can see your Happy creation.
