Woven Twig Star Ornament

You can find twig-shaped stars and wreaths usually in the floral departments of craft stores. Around the holidays, you can find small versions used as ornaments. They make perfect backdrops for some fun thread, like Kreinik glow-in-the-dark or holographic metallic threads. Simply pick your favorite colors, or holiday shades, and start wrapping.

Materials needed:

  • star shaped twig ornament (we found ours at Target and it was already painted white)
  • Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon in your two colors (we used 001L, 029L)
  • #20 Tapestry needle (a blunt-point needle with a large eye) is helpful if you want to "sew" the ribbon in and out of the twig layers
  • extra ribbons, buttons, etc if desired

Instructions:
 

  1. Cut about a 20" piece of 1/8" Ribbon, and tie a knot in one end. Thread the ribbon through an opening in your ornament, using the knotted thread end to secure your ribbon on the back.
  2. Begin weaving or wrapping the ribbon around the ornament. Cut more pieces of ribbon and switch colors as desired.
  3. Use your large needle to "sew" in and out if desired.
  4. Add ribbons, buttons etc as embellishment at the top.
