When you think of decorating with stars for the Christmas season, the first thing that comes to mind is usually star tree toppers. But we like to decorate with them in other ways, too, like when we made these 3D paper stars or these cotton spun ball star ornaments. So far this year we have made a six-point star wreath out of frosted paper. And now we have these felt star ornaments that Krista designed!
Though it can be a little time-consuming to make a bunch of them, it’s easy since you only need to sew together two pieces of felt.
One fun thing about these felt star ornaments is that you can craft a bunch to fill out your holiday tree or garland. Or, you can use them as gift toppers in whatever felt colors you would like. We love being able to use our DIY crafts in multiple ways, and we can’t wait to see what you do with them!
