Have you decorated your Christmas tree yet? We did on Friday and each year I love to see our handmade ornaments from past years. This one is easy to make and has lots of fun texture!
- Textured Cardboard
- Paper Straws
- String or Bakers Twine
- Single Hole Paper Punch
Step 1: Paint a cardboard rectangle and allow it to dry.
Step 2: Cut a small piece of textured cardboard and glue it to the lower portion of the cardboard rectangle for the tree trunk.
Step 3: Cut yarn into small strips and glue on top of the tree trunk, making sure the pieces of yarn get smaller as they reach the top of the tree.
Step 4: Glue paper straws to the two outer edges of the rectangle.
Step 5: Punch two holes to the top of the cardboard rectangle.
Step 6: Cut a piece of string or bakers twine, place through two punched holes and tie a loop to hang the ornament.
Step 7: To finish off the ornament border, cut two additional pieces of paper straw and glue to the top and bottom of the cardboard rectangle.
This ornament can be made with a variety of green yarn and decorated with mini pom poms too!
