Yarn Wrapped Christmas Ornaments

Yarn Wrapped Christmas Ornaments

The Christmas season has well and truly arrived!

There’s all sorts of craziness taking place so if you, like some, have extra time with the kids at home, why not have them make these super easy Christmas ornaments. There is actually no limit with what you can do with these. You can add fluff balls, glitter, paint, drawings and even a message.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
-Cardstock or cardboard
-Colourful Yarn
-Scissors
-Tape
-A star template to trace

WHAT TO DO:

Trace your star shape onto the card and cut it out (or for kids who are getting good with cutting, have them cut out the star themselves).

Tape the end of your yarn into a loop about an inch from one of the tips of your star.

Then, set your child loose, wrapping the yarn around the star shape like crazy!  They can cover the whole star, or leave some of the cardstock showing underneath – either way, the final product is really cute!

HOW TO CHANGE IT UP:
-Try some other holiday shapes!  Little yarn-wrapped Christmas trees would be so cute too!
-String several smaller stars together to make a holiday garland!
