CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS

Last-Minute Holiday DIY: Christmas Tree Ornament

Christmas Tree Ornament

December hasn’t been on my side too much this year. I came down with a really bad cold and my immune system has crashed completely. But I’m finally feeling better after a few long weeks and even though Christmas is behind us already (can you believe it?!) we just started with our December crafts. Holidays have only started and I wanted to squeeze in one last fun DIY before the new year. It’s such a darling one and done in a few minutes. I hope you like it.

1

Things you need:
Green fleece
Red fleece/felt
Small wooden beads
Nylon thread
Thick needle

First take the green fleece and cut a few (about 5-8) round pieces each different size. Now cut a star out of red fleece (I used the Magic Pen to draw one on first).

2

Tie a knot around one bead and leave a little thread, don’t cut it.

3

4

Thread a few more beads (about 5-7) on the top of the first bead and tuck in the excess thread. This is the trunk of the tree.

5

Now make a hole in the middle of each round green piece using a thick needle. Sometimes you need to do this step two or three times.

7

Pass the thread through the hole and add one bead on the top.

8

Repeat this step until you come to the last round piece.

9

Make two holes through the star and pass the thread through both of the holes.

10

Voila! Now you only need to make a loop at the end, cut away the excess but leave a tiny bit of it and burn the end so it doesn’t untie.

That is it. So simple and so cute, aren’t they?

Ps. Wouldn’t they look great as a part of present decoration?

I wish you all amazing holidays and the most magical New Year!

Such a lovely (and quick) DIY! Also, it is much more wise to do all those little craft projects now – you have much more time to enjoy it!
My favourite time as a child wasn’t the weeks before Christmas but the time between the years (as we say in German), the days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. We were four siblings and beside her work, our mother was way too busy with all the baking and making and preparing before Christmas. First after the big rush was over, we sat round the long kitchen table with candles lit, listened to the crackling fireplace and cut snowflakes, folded paper stars and made doll clothes…
