OVERSIZED AND VERSATILE DIY ORNAMENT CLUSTERS
Over the years the trend for oversized tree ornaments have skyrocketed. They look amazing! But what do you do with all the regular ornaments you have accumulated over the years? Some are too pretty to toss, some have sentimental value... Well, I have the PERFECT solution for you!
In this post I will explain how to make oversized ornament clusters with the regular/smaller one you already own. So simple and you don't have to spend an arm and a leg for new ones!
The fun part is, you can really use these "clusters" not only for your tree, but to decorate around your house and... your table! Check out my next post where I show you how pretty these look as part of a center piece.
Let's start the tutorial! You will need:
- Lots and lots of the regular/smaller sized ornaments you already own
- String (not too thick)
- Your creativity!
Anything goes, really, but you could chose the ornaments that go well together for a more cohesive overall look. Here's the method:
Cut a pice of string (about 15", you can adjust depending on how big you want the ornament to be) and start stringing the ornaments. You can chose different sizes for a more striking effect, and for best results, mixing different colours/textures!
When you are happy with the amount of ornaments, make a double knot with both ends of the string, until is tight and the ornaments have fallen into place nicely. CAREFUL: some ornaments don't have very tight caps, and can fall out of it easily. To avoid this, you can take the cap off and add some glue or use a hot glue gun and secure the cap to avoid it falling off.
Take both end and cut the string to your desired length, and make a second knot on the end to make the loop.
And that's it! You have just created your first oversized ornament. Isn't it sooo easy? Now repeat until you have enough!
Here are some photos to show you how I used them:
