String Art Ornaments Instructions:

Start with your round shapes and either a hole punch or drill.  Put a hole in all of your shapes in the same location.  Stack your shapes with wood glue between each one.  Allow to dry as recommended on the bottle.  Paint shapes on front, back, and sides with your desired color of craft paint.

Use a pencil to mark holes where your nails will be located.  Put a nail in each location being sure not to go all the way through your stacked shapes.  Use baker’s twine to wrap your nails and create string art.  Start on your first nail by knotting off your baker’s twine and end with a knot as well.

Cover the exposed edges of your ornament with ribbon using hot glue to secure.  Add some ribbon for hanging on your Christmas tree as well.
