You didn’t think we were done with the DIYs, did you?
Christmas decorations 2021
- cotton yarn
- cookie cutters
- white glue
- sewing pins
- styrofoam trays
These are actually super easy to make
- Trace the shapes of the cookie cutters on top of a styrofoam tray.
- Poke sewing pins through the styrofoam trays to trace out the shape and make sure they are evenly spaced.
- Cut out a few 2ft long pieces of the yarn.
- Into a small bowl pour the glue and dip the yarn in it. Stir in with a fork until its fully covered. Pull the yarn through the prongs of the fork to remove the excess glue.
- It is time to start tracing the shapes on the styrofoam tray. Wrap the yarn around the outline, then start wrapping it around the sewing pins. Make sure there is yarn wrapped around each sewing pin at least once. If you run out of yarn, grab another piece, run it through the glue again and keep wrapping across the pins.
- Tuck the end piece somewhere seamlessly and push down the yarn so that all the layers are touching each other.
- Let the ornaments dry overnight.
- Remove the pins carefully and use a knife to remove the ornament from the styrofoam tray. Tie a ribbon to it and you are all set!
You can make so many different shapes

How to decorate a Christmas tree with ribbon?
There are a few must-do steps when it comes to decorating a Christmas tree. If you want to achieve the best results and want to make your tree look amazing, you need to follow them.
- Fluff the tree if you are using a fake one. Make sure all the branches are spread out.
- Add the lights. They can go into the tree, instead of keeping them on the outside. That way the light will glow as if from the inside of the tree.
- Add the filler.This includes things that would add more interest to your tree. Like things you would put in a flower arrangements.
- Add the ribbon. Wrap it around the tree or let it flow down starting from the top. There is a variety of ways to use ribbon and if you want to add texture to the tree, you need to do it.
- Add the ornaments. Do we need to say more? Ornaments are an essential part of the tree, just make sure you spread them out evenly.
- Add the tree skirt. Finally, add a tree skirt to give your tree a finished look and have a place to arrange your presents.
