101 Days of Christmas: Twine-Wrapped Ornament

Twine-Wrapped Ornament {101 Days of Christmas at lifeyourway.net}

I spotted this idea at Hobby Lobby while we were browsing the other day, and I couldn’t wait to get home and try it since I had plenty of twine in my stash.

This is a simple ornament to make, but I love its rustic charm. I also think these would be fantastic in different sizes and colors in a bowl on the mantle or as part of my table centerpience. You could easily make a collection of them while watching TV in the evening or riding in the car; they’re that quick and easy!

Supplies:

  • styrofoam ball
  • twine
  • glue
  • eye hook
  • ribbon, burlap or fabric
  • ornament hook (optional)

Directions:

Hold the end of your twine in place against the styrofoam ball and begin wrapping. Be sure to wrap in different directions as you go to avoid creating a pattern or making it too neat. (This is the hardest part of the project for my type-a personality, but it’s worth the effort!).

Continue wrapping until the ornament is completely covered and no styrofoam is showing through.

Tuck the end of the twine under several tightly-wrapped strands and glue in place.

Add glue to an eye hook and gently push it into the top of the ornament. Tie a ribbon around the eye hook and add a second piece or an ornament hook for hanging it on the tree.
