How to DIY a rustic Christmas tree ornament
You know what makes these DIY ornaments so easy? There’s really only three steps to complete.
Step one: Grab a strip of fabric and tie it into a double knot around the mason jar ring.
Then, pick another pattern or color fabric strip and repeat. Your knot tying skills are going to be on fire after you’re finished with this DIY.
Work your way around the top until the entire circle is covered.
Step two: Once you’re done tying, the excess fabric will most likely be all over the place; like your morning hair before you’ve had a chance to run a hairbrush through it. Tame all the craziness by using your fingers as a length guide and cut off the excess.
Please, for the love of God, do NOT cut your finger. We had a few touch-and-go moments during this process but managed to finish unscathed.
Step three: After your ornament is all trimmed up, tie a loop of twine around it and ta-da!
Ready to add some rustic charm to your tree 🙂
All our best,
