Glittered Twine Star Christmas Ornament

Like our Twine Ball Christmas Ornaments, these stars are easy to make but it takes time to have them done. Not like days but I made 8 of these 4 medium and 4 larger and they took me a whole afternoon to have stars done and then let them dry overnight. I finished the details next day in the afternoon. It’s su much fun to make them though. In my opinion crafting is relaxing and even therapeutic.

The first couple stars I was a bit stressed because I was taking photos and stuff but then the rest was fun and the process much more fluid.

What I love the most about this type of crafts is that it’s all about imperfection. That precisely the beauty of them. None of them are the same. The twine is imperfect and the pattern is imperfect. Making the stars with wire is so imperfect but when you finish them you will most definitely fall in love!

So, Wanna learn how to make this cute Glittered Twine Star Christmas Ornament???

Supplies

  • Galvanized wire 10 gauge {here says 10 but each country might have different numbers but make sure has a good diameter but that you still can bend it with a plier.}
  • Jute twine
  • White yarn {optional but recommended}
  • Flat Nose Pliers
  • Scissors
  • Stars printed on a page {this is as a guide to make the stars}
  • White Felt
  • White {snow} and gold glitter.
  • Tiny gold stars {optional}
  • Glue gun + silicon sticks.
  • Christmas bells silver and gold
  • White glue or mod podge.

I started with the wire stars. For that I decided what sizes of stars I wanted to make. Since I wasn’t sure I printed different sizes on the same page. Once decided the size I started working with my wire.

I made my first bend with my nose pliers about 1 inch {2.5 cm} from the end.

This will be the start and finish point and it should belong to and internal corner of the star like follows:

Next would be make the first point of the star. Place you bent corner on top of your printed star and mark where you should bend your wire. Using your nose pliers, bend your wire trying to keep the same direction from your first corner.

img_0576

Mark again on the internal corner and bend again.

Following the star design make your 5 points.

When your wire meets the end, bend the wire one last time so it would overlap your first internal corner and cut about 1 inch {2.5 cm} from the corner. {Please bear with me as I try to explain this process I’m showing you each step with photos in case I get you all confused}

Finally you have three options here. You can use hot glue gun to stick both ends together, use a thiner wire to keep both ends together or like I did just make loops with both ends.

img_0581

This is a bit hard since the wire is strong for only fingers so I used the nose pliers, I would put both end and pint side inside the pliers and turn the pliers around so the end would overlap and create a loop. You can play around with your first star and see what works best for you.

Make as many stars you want before moving on.

Now the really fun part! 

Let’s start wrapping up our Glittered Twine Star Christmas Ornament

In a small glass bowl mix 2 parts of glue for each part of water. This makes the glue a little thinner and easier to handle.

I used about 5 me meters {5.5 yards} of twine for each star. And about 1.5 meters {1.6 yards} of yarn for 6 and 8 inches stars {16 y 20 cm.}

img_0592

Soak your twine in the glue. Then take one end and with your thumb and index finger remove the excess of glue pressing and pushing the glue down along the twine.

Wrap the twine around the star randomly. I started putting one end of the twine close wire end loops and then made loops without a specific pattern.

img_0602

It’s important to keep the string tight against the wires as you wrap because it could unravel, but also not so tight so you can modify the wire shape. It happened a couple times and it’s so annoying.

When you run out of twine, tuck the end under the closest twine string.

Repeat process with white yarn.

If you notice the star is too soaked you can remove excess with a paper towel by making quick but soft pats around the star.

img_0614

I suggest you have a large container for the next step or a mat. While the stars are wet apply generously white {snow} glitter and also some {not too much} gold glitter. I mean a lot more white than gold to frost it and add some sparkle.

img_0621

Hang the stars and place some plastic bags or plastic wrap on the floor bellow them so they don’t drip directly on the floor. You definitely don’t want to have to remove glue from the floor later

Let them dry overnight.

While they dry cut some small stars on white felt. They don’t need to be perfect.

Apply your diluted glue on each star and sprinkle white {snow} glitter and some gold glitter on each star.

img_0624

img_0622

Then apply a few gold stars randomly on the stars.

img_0625

img_0623

img_0628

Let them dry overnight.

Once your twine stars and your felt stars are dry, glue one felt star on each twine star wherever you like best.

img_0640

img_0641

Cut some extra twine strips let’s say about 6 inches {15 cm} and with knots hang a bell on each end. I made it one silver one gold on each strip.

img_0644

Make a cute bow leaving your bells hanging.

img_0645

Finally cut some twine strips for you hangers. Fold and make a knot.

img_0648

Insert the folded twine through an opening on your top point of the stars.

img_0649

Insert one end through the other.

img_0650

Pull tight.

img_0651

…and the last but not least step is gluing your twine bow to your star point right on top of your hanger.
