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.
DIY Christmas Star Ornament Supplies:
- 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.)
Taking one corrugate star, generously spread the liquid adhesive over the top of the star.
Pour glitter over the star. Shake the star around to distribute the glitter evenly. Shake off any excess.
Set the star aside and let dry overnight.
After the star has dried completely, use the awl to make a hole in one of the star points.
Your new non-breakable DIY Christmas star ornaments are ready for the tree. They are a great glittery addition.
Happy Christmas crafting!
