I’ve got a really quick and easy festive DIY for you today that you can whip up in no time. As a self-confessed crochet addict I have a massive stash of wool in our house and I really wanted to include this in our Christmas décor in some small way.

I think these wool-wrapped stars combine a bit of traditional Christmas décor with a modern look, and would look great hanging in your window or from the tree.

What you Need:

  • Styrofoam star. I picked this up for £1 in my local Boyes
  • Wool
  • Glue gun
  • Twine (optional)

How to Make it:

  1. Secure your wool to your styrofoam shape by looping it round and fastening with a knot.
  2. Wrap the wool around the shape keeping it pulled tight. Start off by doing one of the five points. Make sure you get a good covering so none of the base shows through.

  3. When you get near to the point of the star, cover the tip with glue using your glue gun.
  4. Quickly (before the glue dries) coil the wool around the end so it sticks to the glue.

  5. Hold the wool on the point of the star in place by wrapping the wool vertically around the tip, before working your way back to the centre of the star in a horizontal fashion.
  6. Repeat steps 1-5 for each point of your star.
  7. Cover the middle section of your star by wrapping the wool as shown below.

  8. When the styrofoam shape is covered, fasten off with a knot.
  9. Tie a piece of wool or twine around the decoration if you want to hang it up.

That’s it! All you need to do now is hang your decoration up or put it on the mantlepiece and feel all festive. If you’re looking for some more Christmas DIYs then have a look at these ideas.
