DIY 3-D Ornaments

21/12/2016

If you’re a regular around here, you may have noticed that I never get too wild with my DIY projects – I like to things super simple. It’s basically my DIY motto. For this most recent project, I kept it so simple, I wasn’t even involved. I can actually take no credit for this one because it was done by my colleague, the lovely Charly, and all I did was snap away while she created. And it took her a grand total of five minutes to create these gorgeous 3D ornaments. They are perfect as Christmas decorations, but they are also lovely enough to keep hanging around after all the festivities. I love the simplicity of the design and it would be a fun activity to do with the smalls.

You will need:

  • 15 straws
  • fishing line
  • scissors

 

STEP 1

Cut 3 of the straws in half so that you have 6 short pieces and 12 long pieces.

STEP 2
Using 6 sets of 2 long and one short straw, thread your strings through 3 pieces at a time (long-short-long) and knot your string at the end to form a triangle. Repeat for the remaining 5 sets.

STEP 3

Lay your 6 triangles in a row and thread the string through the short straw pieces, pulling them together at both ends and tying a knot to join them fairly tightly.

STEP 4
Lift 3 alternate pieces upwards to form the top of your ornament and tie them together. Repeat the same step for the three pieces at the bottom.

STEP 5
Tie a long piece of string/fishing line to the top so that you can hang your ornament.
Voila – you’re done!
Tip: Try them in a few different sizes.

  • Can we call it a day yet? #home #evening #winetime
  • It started with a conversation over lunch that went something like this: 'so these custom doors and tops that we're forever making for clients, we should probably just make more and sell them because everyone always asks where we got them'... hmm, 'seems like a perfectly reasonable plan for two people already overwhelmed by their workload. Yalla, let's do it!' And then there was the #billyhack that accelerated our @fronteriors launch plans. Read all about my exciting new business venture with @liveloudgirl on the blog. Link in profile.
  • Walking our the door with a long to do list ahead of me, including a stop to pick up Ethan's new passport that I applied for early September 2018. Better late than never, eh!? In case you missed the news about my design collaboration with @helmiibeds there's a post on the blog with all the details - and it's available to shop online if you're in the market for an awesome new bed with a handy removable cover! 📷 by @marli_smithphotography #helmiiXhouseofhawkes #bedslipcover #removablebedcover #bedroomstyling #bedroomdecor #houseofhawkes

  • I'm taling the kids on an overnight mini vacay to Ras Al Khaimah today, although they've talked it up to something substantially more glamorous... and now it's raining. Really, weather?! Anyhoo, how cute is this room? Our refreshed website is live and a tour of this space will be on there soon. But first, the mini-break. 📷 by @marli_smithphotography

  • Bed. That's where the party's at for me tonight. I can feel a cold coming at me like a freight train so I'm dosing myself and catching some early zzz's. This room though, and that afternoon light, from our styling sesh at casa @whitemossdecor is giving me good vibes. Night night insta family.
