How to: Make a Rustic Twig Ornament

In the Blog "Merry Green Holiday Season", I give you tips to enjoy a more sustainable holiday Season. Here is an idea to add nature into your traditional tree ornaments.



  • Thin twigs and sprigs of pine

  • Twine

  • Buttons

  • Red beads

  • Garden shears

  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks


Trim twigs to desired lengths.

Shape a star, a snowflake or a tree by overlaying twigs.

Glue the twigs using a hot glue gun.

Wrap the glued points with twine for reinforcement.

Form a loop with twine for hanging the ornament.

Decorate with sprigs of pine, buttons and red beads, attaching with hot glue
