Step 1. Begin the simple crochet star pattern for your Christmas ornaments. This pattern is very easy – just two quick rounds!
Round 1: Start with a magic loop, ch 3 (counts as first dc), 9 dc in magic loop. Pull to tighten, sl st to join (10 dc in total).
Round 2: Ch 1, sc in same space, (dc, trc, ch 1, trc, dc) all in next st, *sc in next st, (dc, trc, ch 1, trc, dc) in next stitch, repeat from * 3 times, sl st to starting sc. Finish off, weave in ends (5 sc, 5 star points or petals).
When you are done with the crochet star pattern, your star’s points will be rounded and it might look more like a flower than a star, but don’t worry, we will get it into shape.
Step 2. Next you will stiffen and shape your stars. Mix a little of the fabric stiffener solution with some water to thin it out, then dip the crochet star pattern Christmas ornaments into the solution and make sure it gets fully covered. Squeeze out the excess.
Wrap a piece of cardboard with plastic wrap. You can secure the plastic wrap in place with a piece of tape on the back if you like. Place the star on the plastic covered piece of cardboard and stretch it into shape. Use straight pins to hold the star’s points in place. Once your stars are pinned in place, set them aside to dry. It will take several hours for them to dry completely.
Step 3. Lastly, you will attach jute ties to the crochet star pattern Christmas ornaments. Once the stars are dry, they should be stiff and hold their shape. Remove the pins and take them off of the cardboard. Finally, loop a length of jute through one of the points and tie the loop closed.
