Easy Twig String Art Ornaments

Our tree is finally up!  And since I love me some  Christmas crafts, my son and I recently whipped up these lovely (and easy) string art twig ornaments!

These ornaments were super easy to make (and free to boot, since we had everything already on hand!

First, we went to the park and picked up a bunch of sticks.

Then, I tied our sticks together using Baker's Twine into cute triangles.

Afterwards, we grabbed our collection of colorful yarn. I cut off bits of yarn and tied them to the ornaments.  Then, we just wrapped the yarn around the ornament.  (My preschooler struggled with longer pieces of yarn, so I made his strings shorter.)  Overall, we wrapped around 3 pieces of yarn around each ornament, tying each one in place as we went along.

Once we finished, I just tied on a shorter piece of yarn to hang the ornaments up in our tree.

Love it when a craft is easy and beautiful too!
