Holiday décor from simple string and straw
Paper straws reincarnated as kitsch Christmas tree ornaments
What you’ll need: Stiff plastic or paper straw White string Scissors
Directions: 1. Cut the straw into 12 two-inch long pieces. Note: The longer the pieces are, the bigger the ornament. 2. String three pieces together, then tie them at a point to form a triangle. Do not cut the string. 3. String two more pieces to form a diamond, and add one more piece to stick out on one point on the side. Cut the string but leave allowance. 4. Create a second piece of the exact same shape. You will now have two diamonds with one piece of straw sticking out at a point on the side. 5. Put one diamond on top of the other to align, with each of their last pieces sticking out on the left and on the right. 6. Join the two diamonds by tying their points together with string, first top and bottom, and then on each side. 7. The points sticking out will form one side of the diamond, tie them to their points on each side. 8. Make sure all points are knotted securely, then tuck in any excess string into the straws to hide.
