Instead of crochet and knitting, here comes another easy and fun yarn crafts to use your leftover yarn scraps – Yarn Thread Snowflake DIY Tutorial. This adorable ornament out of only yarn, small cardboard as decorative embellishments, cost next to nothing to make.

Supplies you need:

How to:

Wind a layer of yarn (better thin yarn but not thick layer) as the basis of the pom-pom, . We make a pom-pom , but do not fluff it, but we tie up as the rays of a star later. On the resulting snowflake we sew a nose and a mouth, glue eyes, decorate with tinsel, tie a loop of length.

In order to make the rings, we need cardboard and compasses. Draw two circles (with a diameter of 6 cm and 18 cm) and carefully cut. We should have two such rings. The yarn must be rolled up into small balls so that each one passes freely into the hole. I took two colors of yarn: blue for the snowflake itself and white for tying the warp and rays.

Take one ring and cut off the thread (white above), which will further connect our base.Then tie the string (at one time, not on the knot) and put it on the ring, as shown in the photo. we cover our design with the second ring so that the two strings are outside. Now we will wrap the rings with yarn (in my case, blue) so as not to lose the outer two threads for tying. When we wind the rings, you need to make sure that the strings fit snugly together without gaps. And since the inner diameter is smaller, the threads there will periodically overlap each other. d continue to wind the ring further. completely wrapped rings, strings for tying stick. It took two balls, the threads are wound in one row tightly to each other. You can also wind the second row, then the snowflake will be softer and more magnificent.carefully cut the threads along the edge of the rings with scissors so that we do not accidentally cut our threads for tying. I use thin manicure scissors, and it was convenient for me to cut, running the blades right between the cardboard rings.

Carefully remove the cardboard. Tie up the yarn tightly so that the snowflake holds well. Arrange the yarn evenly in order, and divide the strings of snowflakes in quarter, then half again! Tie each part with thread. You will get eight identical rays, after which we cut off the excess threads, align the rays of the snowflakes, if necessary.

You can make your snowflake bigger with longer rays, divide each into two again, then decorate with eyes, red felt as lips and add buttons and glitters. Easy peasy and fun, agree? You can make yarn birdies for Christmas tree, too.

I found the cutest ornament on Pinterest, so I figured I would give it a shot.

While I am putting the final result on my tree, this is totally a Pinterest fail.

DIY Polish Star Christmas Ornaments

diy polish star christmas ornaments 5d8b31f393916 - DIY Polish Star Christmas Ornaments

My mother-in-law posted a link on Facebook the other day detailing how to make something called Polish Star Ornaments.

I watched the video and immediately fell in love with these easy, yet beautiful ornaments and thought how wonderful they would look on my Christmas tree.

Tradition of the Polish Star

In the Polish tradition of celebrating Christmas, the star has special significance.

On Christmas Eve the first star of the night is named “Gwiazda,” meaning “little star,” in remembrance of the Star of Bethlehem.

At the moment it appears, greetings and good wishes are exchanged.

Families then partake of the Christmas supper, “Wigilia,” the most carefully planned meal of the year.

Polish Star Ornaments

You will need the following supplies to make your Polish Star Christmas Ornaments:

  • A pen or pencil (to form the points)
  • Something sharp to poke a hole through the center of each piece of paper, I used a sewing needle, a toothpick would work too. If you use a compass to draw your circles, you can use that to poke a hole through the circles of paper.
  • Scissors
  • White Glue (to glue the points)
  • Jewelry Cord (to hold the pieces together, string, twine, ribbon etc. can also be used)
  • 2 Jewelry spacing beads, sequins, etc. (to keep the cord on both ends taught)
  • 5 Sheets of 8.5 x 11 Paper (scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, printer paper, brown shipping paper etc.)
  • A Compass or object you can use to draw around about 4″ wide, I used a cardboard ribbon spool
  • A Compass or object you can use to draw around about 1″ wide, I used a nickel

Instructions:

1.  Use a 3″ – 4″ circle (I used a cardboard ribbon spool that is roughly 3.5″) and draw 4 circles onto a piece of paper. Next, use your .09″ – 1″ circle (I used a nickel) and draw the inner circle in the middle of the larger circle. Do this on the remaining pieces of 8.5 x 11 pieces of paper for a total of 10-20 large circles.  Or use the template found here.

2. Cut the larger circles out.  Then Fold the circle in half, fold a second time in half (1/4), then a third time in half (1/8).

3.  Open your circles up. In the center of the circle punch, use a needle, toothpick, etc. to make a hole.

4. Cut along the folds almost to the center, but not quite all the way. You can see in the photos below where the cuts are made.

5. Put a small dab of glue on the point of one tab, then wrap the tab around a pencil or pen hold in place for a few seconds so the glue sets, do this for all 8 tabs. You can also do this without using a pen or pencil as seen in the youTube video posted at the bottom.

6. Slip a spacer bead onto your jewelry cord halfway down the cord (you can also use string, twine, thin ribbon etc.). I didn’t take a photo of this, so I used the diagram from diohomeimprovements.com.

At TotsFamily.com we like to get crafty but we are also a very frugal set of people.

When Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store challenged us to create a #SpookySpaces tablescape we couldn’t refuse.

Our table consists of three separate crafts which together make a lovely scene.

Or you can make just one or two of the crafts and add to your existing decor.

Framed Holiday Quote

I love framed holiday quotes because you can customize and reuse it for every holiday table scape you create.

I chose the phrase ‘BOO’ for Halloween and decided to just use 1 letter per frame so it really stands out.

You could also choose whole words or phrases for each frame.

Instructions

I drew my letters, cut them out and glued them to a piece of Halloween craft paper.

Next, I trimmed my Halloween paper down and taped it to the back of the mat that is included in the frame.

I then assembled the frame back together and it was done.

Easy and effective. (You can reuse the frames with new paper for each holiday, accordingly)
