DIY: Modern Festive Ornaments

You will need:

• Balls of yarn
• Fork
• Scissors
• Craft glue
• Cardboard
• Acrylic paint
• Paint brush
• Clear baubles (You should be
able to nd these at a craft
shop or variety store!)
• Paint pens
• Styrofoam ball
• Matches or toothpicks
• Sequins
• Pins (Make sure you get some with big enough heads so they don’t fall through the sequins!)

Pom Pom Garland:

1. Wrap the wool around your fork, keeping it as tight as possible and tie a knot in the middle.

2. Cut each side down the middle and you have a pom pom! You will need to give them a little haircut to even out the sides

3. Repeat steps 1-3 until you have enough pom poms to fill your garland! Glue them all to a long piece of yarn.

Cardboard Ornaments:

1. Cut some groovy shapes out of cardboard.

2. Paint your shapes!

3. Glue them together and glue a piece of yarn on as a hanger. Make some friends for your ornament!

Sun Tree Topper:

1. Poke your matchsticks into your styrofoam ball around the circumference.

2. Stick the pins through the sequins.

3. Repeat step 2 a million times until your sun looks like this!

TIP: Try using a smaller sized Christmas tree so you don’t spend the next 10 years making your decorations! Ours is a 3ft tiny tree
and we love it!
