Ribbon Star Ornaments

As seen on www.marthastewart.com


  • Ribbon (for example, to make one star, you will need a length of 18” for 1/2” wide ribbon, 22” for 5/8” wide ribbon, and 32” for 1” wide ribbon)
  • Hot glue gun/glue sticks
  • Embellishments


1. Starting at one end, tie a knot in your ribbon following diagram A.

2. Continue to tie knots closely together following diagram B (you should end up with 6 knots). If the knots feel like they are slipping or insecure, a dab of hot glue can be added to an inside edge to help hold the shape.

3. Hot glue the ends of the knotted ribbon to create your star. This is the perfect spot for a festive embellishment, or a loop of thin ribbon to make your star into an ornament. Enjoy!
