DIY cursive string tree ornament

MrKate_CursiveStringOrnament_featured_2

A simple chic ornament, to keep your tree classy. I came up with this DIY Cursive String Ornament because I am determined to have a classy christmas this year. I'm kind of over the overly accessorized trees and wanted to go with a chic theme for our holiday home decor and I'm starting with these string ornaments! Added bonus: the Baker's Twine looks like a candy cane!

Tip: This DIY works best for short words so if you don't have a short name try words like 'joy' 'noel' 'cheer' etc.

The 'Kate' took a little more nudging to get right. TIP: If you glue wipes off too much while you're arranging your letters you can paint another layer of glue over the top to make it stiffer. Use a plastic knife to smear the glue and concentrate more on the places where the string intersects.

Do It!:

  1. Lay out what you want to write with your string so you know how long of a piece you'll need. TIP: shorter words are easier! If you don't have a short name do a short word like 'Joy', 'Noel', 'Love' etc.
  2. Cut your string.
  3. Dip the string in the Mod Podge so that it's completely saturated. Don't worry, it will dry clear!
  4. Draw out your word with the saturated string on the parchment paper. Let dry. TIP: If you glue wipes off too much while you're arranging your letters you can paint another layer of glue over the top to make it stiffer. Use a plastic knife to smear the glue and concentrate more on the places where the string intersects.
  5. Peel off your ornament and gently hang in on your tree!
