This string star ornament is a budget-friendly, easy DIY project, and a great add-on to your Christmas decor.
Our Christmas theme this year is something rustic, and my sister was energetic enough to DIY the majority of the ornaments. One of the decorations that she created is the string star ornaments made out of jute twine and some white strings.
Well, initially, she planned only to use jute twine, but it turned out less attractive. So she decided to use white strings as well, which makes the Christmas tree look lively.
These star ornaments are easy to make. You can watch the video on how we did it on our Youtube channel (embedded here) or check the step-by-step photo below.

DIY String Star Ornaments
First, put the star template on top of the corkboard and wrap it with saran wrap. This will prevent the string from sticking into the paper.
Then, put the pins on the 5 points of the star.
Make the frame of the star first.
Mix 4 parts of glue to 1 part of water.
Cut about 2 meters of twine/string (depending on how big your star template is). Then, soak it in the glue mixture. Take away the excess glue out of the string.
Following the star template, wrap the string around the pins. Let it dry completely.
When the frame of the star is dry, it’s time to add another layer of string around it.
Cut the desired length of string, soak it in the glue mixture and take the excess glue. Then wrap it on the frame. You can add more layers if you want. Then let it dry completely.
(Optional) Add glitters to bring bling on your ornaments. You can also use jute twine and white string in the same star.
And that’s it! Easy peasy DIY string star. A bit messy to make, but we love how it turned out.
I hope you enjoy this DIY.
