Star Ornaments

You can make some really beautiful Christmas tree ornaments using bendable wire, such as florist’s or jewelry wire.

You will need the following craft supplies:
hot glue gun
a large handful of old buttons

Draw a star shape onto a piece of paper or use a pre-figured star. Use this pattern to help you bend the wire into shape if you don’t want to free-hand the star shape. Let the wire ends of the star meet and end it with a final twist or twist the wire into decorative coils. The star shape should be flat.

Now use your hot glue gun to glue buttons to the joints of the wire star. You should glue to buttons on either side of the star, so that the glue is hidden between buttons.

Buy some pretty ribbon and tie a loop and bow around the star so that you can hang it on the tree branches.
