1. What You'll Need
- 1. Bakers Twine (Green)
- 2. Corrugated Metal Ribbon
- 3. Long Nose Pliers with Cutting Edge
2. Measure & Cut Ribbon
Measure the ribbon to your desired size. We measured approximately 7-8 inches to create our ornaments, but if you estimate about half to three-quarters inch per arm per star point, you'll be in the perfect ballpark. With your long nose pliers, cut the ribbon at your desired measurement. Tip: For good measure, add an extra half inch or so to ensure adequate length.
3. Bend One Star Point
Bend one point of your star with the tip of your long nose pliers. This should create a V shape.
Continue bending points in your star. If it turns out that you don't have enough or have too many points, flatten your points and bend to the desired length and number.
5. Shape & Cut Off Excess
Shape your metal ribbon to form into a star! If there is excess, trim it with the long nose pliers. We recommend leaving about a quarter inch of overlap between the beginning and ending points.
6. Make More & Add Twine!
Create more ornaments! Four point, six point, eight point stars! The possibilities are endless. String each piece with bakers twine, long enough to hang easily. We cut an approximately 6-8 inch piece and folded it in half to tie to the ornament.
