DIY Wire + Star Holiday Ornaments

TOOLS & MATERIALS
large star beads (ours are vintage lucite)
black paperclips (we used square clips) or wire
wire cutters (if necessary)

INSTRUCTIONS
We’ve been looking for a place to use these vintage lucite star beads
for a while, and given our recent obsession with stars (hello, star crowns!)
we thought this holiday project would be the perfect opportunity.

We began with square paperclips, which made this shape easy.
We simply bent up one side of the paper clip, making an “S” shape,
and slipped on the bead. You can experiment with different shapes
by simply using black wire. Our beads fit snugly on the wire, but if
you’d like extra security and have the space, add a bead cap
to the top of the star to hold it in place.

DIY Cork + Pin Holiday Tree

TOOLS & MATERIALS
cork trivet
black round pushpins
hook or nail for hanging on wall
temporary picture-hanging strip (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS
An easy DIY project that you can do for the holidays and
undo on December 26. Simply line up pushpins on cork trivet
to form a tree shape, stick pins in place and hang on wall!
We were lucky to have a loop attached to our cork trivet
(perfect for wall hanging), but if yours does not have one,
a simple temporary picture-hanging strip
on the back would do the trick.
O, tannenbaum!
