Rustic Twine Christmas Ornaments
Noelle and I made some ornaments this afternoon. My oven is still not working - they ordered the part and it will be fixed on Tuesday or Wednesday next week. No baking until mid next week.
Until then - lots of ornament and party favor ideas!
To make this project you will need:
Twine or Jute
Pretty raffia bows (optional)
Little pearl/rhinestones to glue on raffia bows
You can get everything you need at any craft or fabric store. I happened to get everything on the above list at Hobby Lobby.
Try to buy smooth styrofoam balls - they are a little easier to work with for this project.
Push the paper clip into the ball - this will be where the ornament hanger connects to the tree.
Start gluing and winding the twine - starting at the top around the paper clip.
I found these raffia bows and little pearl and rhinestone doo-dads at Hobby Lobby and I knew they would look cute on my twine ornaments. I just used a little glue to adhere the too-dad.
If we could make 25 or so of these they would look fantastic on a tree. But it took a couple of hours to make four. If we want a full tree of these next year - we need to start making them in November. Perhaps if we made 10 a week up until Christmas.
Keep checking back - I have a lot of simple ornament and party favor ideas.
