Rustic Chopstick Cross Ornament
Easter Decor Inspiration #10
Another quick ornament for your Easter tree. This rustic wood cross ornament is made using chopsticks!
If you haven’t mastered the art of eating Chinese food with chopsticks (and you have a drawer full of them because you opted for a fork instead), then this is the project for you.
This ornament is super quick, super easy and requires only one chopstick.
Things You Will Need:
Brown craft paint and paper towel
Craft wire and cutters
Silver cord and scissors
Craft glue or hot glue
Remaining tools: garden pruners, ruler, drill and small bit
Rustic Chopstick Cross Instructions
Cut a 2 1/2″ and a 4″ stick from one chopstick.
The 4″ stick is the vertical part of the cross. Drill a small hole 1/4″ down from one end of the stick. Tip: Take your time and apply light pressure when drilling to prevent cracking the wood.
Stain the sticks of the cross. Using paper towels, apply brown craft paint to the sticks and wipe off immediately.
Lay the 4″ stick on your work surface with the drilled hole at the top and facing upward. Apply a dot of craft or hot glue 1 1/2″ down from the top. Center the 2 1/2″ stick horizontally across the 4″ stick and over the glue. Allow the glue to dry or cool, depending on the type of glue used.
Cut an 9″ length of craft wire. Wrap the wire in a criss-cross fashion around the intersection of the wood cross pieces.
Apply a dot of glue on the front of the cross, over the wire. Place a small flower over the glue.
Thread an 8″ length of thin silver cording through the drilled hole in the wood cross. Knot the ends together to create the hanger.
That’s it! Your Rustic Chopstick Cross Ornament is done!
Now “wash, rinse and repeat” with the rest of those unused chopsticks to fill your Easter tree.
