Starburst Ribbon Ornaments
Hello everyone. The holidays are here and if you’re looking for a fun and easy ribbon craft project I’ve got one for you…Starburst Ribbon Ornaments!
These pretty ornaments can be hung on the tree, dangled from garland or used to embellish a Christmas gift. There are just so many great ways you can use these ornaments to decorate for the holidays so make a bundle and have fun decking the halls.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Starburst Ribbon Ornaments:
• Three (or more) different colors of 4” wide satin ribbon. The Ribbon Roll Floral Satin ribbons are great for this project because it has a firm finish that creates a beautiful cone shape.
• Hot Glue Gun
• Mini Christmas Ornament (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)
• Card Stock—cut into 3” diameter circle
Note: I made my ornaments using solid colored ribbon but you can also use patterned ribbons to create a more whimsical ornament design.
HOW TO MAKE A STARBURST RIBBON ORNAMENT:
Step 1: Cut 20 to 30 pieces of each ribbon measuring 3 1/2” x 4” wide. The number of cones you’ll need will depend on how large you want your ornament to be.
Step 2: Roll each piece of ribbon into a cone shape. Starting at one tip of the paper, roll the ribbon to form a cone shape. Add a bad of hot glue to the loose end to secure the cone shape in place.
Once you have all of your paper cones rolled you’ll begin to assemble your ornament.
Step 3: Glue the cones onto the cardstock circle alternating colors (or patterns) until you’ve formed a complete circle. There will be an open space in the center of your ornament where the mini ornaments will be glued.
Step 4: Remove the caps from each mini ornament and glue a handful in the center of each ribbon ornament.
You just created a beautiful Starburst Ribbon Ornament!
To hang the ornaments on your tree, glue a loop of fishing line or a narrow piece of ribbon to the back of the cardstock circle so it can be hung. Or use the ornaments as a giftware embellishment and attach them to wrapped packages using double sided tape.
