As a mother to 5 very energetic kids, I have been a long time fan of non-breakable Christmas décor and ornaments. With each child came the phase of not being able to leave the Christmas tree alone and many fragile ornaments were smashed. I have many photos documenting the first ornament fatalities of the Christmas seasons of the past. For the most part, the kids have grown out of smashing Christmas ornaments. However they all get their coordination, or lack of, from me so there are still plenty of ornaments dropped each year. So of course my love of non-breakable ornaments has continued. Every year I look for a non-breakable ornament to make. This year it’s these corrugated DIY Christmas star ornaments.
- Darice Corrugate Star Shapes
- Darice Foam Brushes
- Liquid Adhesive (I used Mod Podge, but even Elmer’s glue would work fine.)
- Darice 5/8 inch Ribbon
- Darice Extra Fine Glitter in colors Snowfall, Gold, and Luminous.
- Awl (This a tool used to make holes in leather or wood.)
- Spray Sealant (Optional – this will help your glitter not flake off.)
Happy Christmas crafting!
