Square Christmas String Ornaments

The Tiny Funnel
For today's ornament (my personal challenge to make an ornament a day using only what I have on hand) I wanted to recreate the string disks I made last year (for work) but to try them as squares-or diamonds as they hang better diagonally.

Materials:
•Bakers twine, string, Perle cotton or light weight yarn

18 feet/216 inches
•Light weight cardboard (from a white gift box or a thick paper plate)
•Plastic jewels (or sequins or pom-poms plus glue or glue dots-use what you have)
•Pinking scissors
•Push pin
•Needle 


Cut the cardboard into a 3” square with pinking scissors.
Poke a hole with a push pin in the center of the square.


Thread one end of a length of string (about 18’) through the hole.
Remove the needle leaving a 5" tail on the back to tie off later.

Wrap the string around the square starting in one corner, moving from one notch on the top and then down around to the bottom until the square is completely filled.



Tie and knot the twine off with tail.
Add a decoration (
plastic jewels, sequins or pom-poms) to the center front and back of the square.

Poke a hole with a push pin at the top of the square and insert a hanger or string loop for hanging.
