How to Make Birch Star Ornaments:
I found these cute press on ornaments at Target. They are actually meant to be used as gift tag embellishments but I had other ideas in mind.
This birch wrapping paper has been a workhorse for me. I actually used it to cover the back of my bookcases a while back. This time around I wanted to use it to cover the stars.
I traced the stars on the paper and then cut them smaller. I wanted them to fit and have a bit of the wood showing through. Then using the mod podge I glued them on and then sealed the paper in. I did this on both sides of the star shapes.
Using some of my left over craft paint, I painted over the red snowflake. And then painted the button in a brown color as well. Now you tell me if that button is not the spitting image of rustic!
Once the paint had dried I just stuck it onto the wooden star. I had also opened a hole in the star using the edge of a sharp object (be careful) and then passed twine through it to hang it up.
Since they were so easy to make I made two! And you can make your own I have supplied you with similar items you can buy.
And you know I liked them so much I will be making some for my tree as well. It was a super easy ornament to make and has just the right amount of rustic.
I’m so happy with how these rustic Christmas ornaments turned out and will be perfect for my woodland-inspired tree. How are you decorating your tree this year?
