Hello everyone! Here is a post from last year. Hope you enjoy!
This is a super simple project that my mom and I put together with the short amount of free time that we have had. Hope that you enjoy!
First of all, gather your supplies. You will need 2 gauges of wire, 20-24 gauge and a thicker one, around 18 gauge. You also need your cookie cutter and wire cutters.
Start by making a loop at the end of the thicker wire. I used a pencil and wrapped around it. Secure the end by wrapping it back around the wire.
Now you can wrap the wire around the cookie cutter. I ended up wrapping twice, just to make it stronger, but once will probably be enough. You want to be able to push it into the corners and around edges.
Once it is wrapped, secure it by wrapping around the part where the loop is. Then you can remove it from the cookie cutter. Cut off any excess with the wire cutters.
Now for the fun part! Start wrapping wire around the star shape. This is where you use the thinner wire. I just kept wrapping around all different ways until I felt like it was finished.
This will look so pretty on the tree! You could pick different colored wire too, like copper or gold. I tied a sheer white ribbon around the top. I did try with with a heart shape too, but it didn’t have enough edges to keep the wire in place. Too bad, because it would have looked really cute :(.
Aren’t these cute? They are so simple and are a quick and easy project. Hope that you all have a wonderful week before Christmas!
