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
Jute Twine / String / Yarn
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.

This looks easy and fun!
Cute ??? THANK You For Sharing ?G-d ♥️Bless
You are welcome☺️
This looks like a fun project! Thanks
Thanks, Lorna. We had so much fun creating this star ornaments.
Looks simple and great. How long is drying time in between steps as I am debating doing for gift exchange event and would love to try this as an activity.
Thank you. It took us probably 30 minutes to 1 hour. We left it dry on top of the heater vent that’s why it was fasted to dry them. But I believe it will take a day if you will just let it air dry.
My original star is so stuck to the saran wrap.
Hmmm… I wonder why. Did you add water to the glue?
This looks great! Is there a printable template for the star?
I searched it online. But let me know if you have trouble finding the right one.

How long does it usually take for the glue to dry. We have limited time schedule to do this. Thanks
It depends on the weather condition or the environment.
We did this during winter time and let the star dry right on the furnace, and it took approximately 4 hours to dry.
Out of curiosity, how big was the star template you used?
Hi Wendy! It’s about 5 inches
Thank you for these instructions . They are so fun and beautiful. I can think of so many ways to use them.
I have done this type of project over balloons, but never thought about making stars. Great idea and am looking forward to doing this project right after Thanksgiving. I bet it would look very pretty to use butcher’s string – the red and white (or green and white) kinds. Thank you for posting this.
Thank you Dotty-Kay!
I think your idea is great. Let me see your finish product, tag us at IG, FB or Pinterest @eytozeecreative
These are gorgeous. Can’t wait to make them with the kids.
Thank you, Mary!
