Burlap Tree Ornaments - 6The trend for natural and rustic appearing Christmas trees are becoming ever more popular. However, while these types of ornaments may not look as expensive as glass baubles or decorative lights, than can still be quite costly. Making them from scratch, on the other hand, is only consuming with your time. Here is one version of a quick and rustic ornament tutorial that will help you attain that more traditional tree.

Burlap Tree Ornaments - 1What you will need: 

Burlap cloth
Styrofoam balls
Thread
Twine
Needle
Scissors

Burlap Tree Ornaments - 2Steps:

1. Place a foam ball on the burlap cloth. Tentatively wrap the ornament in the cloth until it is completely covered. Cut the material needed to cover one ornament.

2. Place the material that has just been removed on the remaining burlap. Cut out enough sheets of burlap to equal the number of ornaments that you will ultimately have.

5. Now that each ornament has a faux cap, one of the last steps is to create a hanging mechanism. Thread the needle through the centre of the top cap so that it makes a loop. Tie a knot so that it stays in place.
