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?​

I really like these and actually have some of those stick-ons. I see no links, however, and was interested in ordering the birch wrapping paper.
