Do-It-Yourself Christmas Ornaments

These "do it yourself" Christmas ornaments, made of sticks and yarn, can be a fun project for the whole family.

Cross two sticks and wire them together, as in Fig 1. Wrap two or three turns of yarn around the intersection and tie them off, as in Fig 2. Weave the yarn onto the frame, as in Fig 3. If you want a figure with six sections, cross and wire three sticks together as in Fig 4 and then tie and weave your yarn.
