Here’s my project!

Modern Wrapped Tree Ornaments

I saw these Scandinavian inspired holiday tree ornaments on Pinterest and fell in love with the simplicity of them. I am all about modern European decor this year. I love the clean, simple look of their holiday decorations. Cute simple trees, garlands and ornaments. The ones I found on Pinterest were a craft made by a designer for Remodelista you can check them out by following the link.

I wanted to make something geometric and these looked like a pretty simple DIY to recreate, so I thought I would give it a try. For added flair, I made mine with gold metallic floss and wow did they came out gorgeous! I am giving these as a gift to my partner in the 2015 Ornament Exchange!

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the triangles, but do not be discouraged if you do not own a die cutting machine, you can use plain old scissors to cut them out, because I provided a printable guide so you can cut the triangles out perfectly. I also used Silhouette Chipboard for the base. They can definitely be made with any type of thin cardboard, much like a cereal or snack box. Here’s how I made mine~

paint triangles before making ornament

Paint your triangles with a light coat of white acrylic paint. Let them dry.

Wrap ribbon on ornament

Add a line of the Elmer’s adhesive to the bottom of the triangle. Press the end of the string on the adhesive and slowly and evenly start wrapping the floss around the triangle.

Add the Scott Photo splits up the sides of the triangle as you wrap, this helps the floss to stay secure and not move.

Make a modern geometric tree ornament with embroidery floss

You are going to wrap two layers of floss. After the first layer, on the back of the ornament only, roll the Elmer’s Adhesive on top of the string. This is so second layer will not move while you are wrapping it. Hot glue the ends of the floss down at the end. Start the second color and repeat steps.

Glue floss to ornament


Before wrapping the top of the triangle hot glue a piece of floss tot he tip for the hanger. Continue wrapping. Hot glue the end of the floss. And that’s it!


It does take a little practice keeping the floss smooth and even. Just wrap slowly and evenly. I love these! I’m thinking, a bunch of these would make a super cute garland for the fireplace and/or tree too!
