10 Day Countdown: Handmade Holiday Star Ornaments

Handmade Holiday Star Ornaments

Buying ornaments may be easy, but making your very own Christmas ornaments will create a special Holiday memory for years-to-come. AND you can collect, gift or reuse these ornaments as you create new Holiday ornaments year after year. 

It doesn't have to be complicated.  This pretty ornament made from the stalk of wheat looks just as pretty on the tree as it is decorated and wrapped to a gift. 

Let's get started and make the ornament below.

1-  You will need one bundle of Natural Dried Wheat Stalks available in bunches from your craft store.

2-  You will also need a bag of Woodsies variety pack of wood shapes, circles and teardrops, shown above available at A.C. Moore, Michael's Crafts, Joann Fabrics or your local craft store. You can also order your supplies online.

3-  Cut the shafts of wheat to short lengths to form star points and then glue to the back of the round center. Glue the small tear-drops to the front.

4-  As a final touch use a color marker of your choice to add color to your completed Holiday Star Ornament! 

Why not use the remaining wheat stalks to decorate your 
holiday table settings and holiday packages!
