In today’s tutorial I’ll show you how to make Christmas tree ornaments with I-cords and wire. They look complicated but are very easy to make. Aren’t they cute?
- I-cords – made with a knitting nancy or double lucet, or you can crochet or knit I-cords
- wire cutter and round nose pliers
- needle and scissor
Cut a piece of wire slightly longer than the I-cord and make a loop at one end of the wire. Thread the wire through the I-cord.
Now bend the wire back and forth into a zig-zag shape.
Form the zig-zag into a star.
Wrap the yarn round the wire loop to secure the star shape and cut off the excess wire.
Knot the I-cords together.
And hide the ends of the yarn inside the I-cords.
You can also bend the wire into different shapes: I made stars, hearts and trees. In the picture above, you get a glimpse of two upcoming projects of my Advent Calendar.
