Fabric Covered Polystyrene Stars

Fabric Covered Polystyrene Stars

Cover polystyrene stars with stretch fabric and cotton cord and make easy ornaments to decorate your Christmas tree or any place of your house.

Cover the large star with the cotton fabric and hand sew the edges.

Using a hot glue gun add the swirl and leaves cut out satin ribbon around it.

Pass the cord through the centre of the star (use a thick needle and/or a piercing tool) and pull tight to clearly define the internal corners of the star. Secure the cord to one of the sides.

Tie a long piece of cord to the middle of the already placed cord and pass around the peaks of the star and back to the centre. Secure in the middle when you finish from all sides.

For the small star, place some fabric in the centre of it.

Repeat the cord passing procedure above.

End by covering the peaks of the star with the cord.
