These pipe cleaner tree ornaments are SO CUTE and they're so easy to make! With only 2 pipe cleaners you can make this awesome Christmas craft in less than 5 minutes!
1sparkly green pipe cleaner
1sparkly gold pipe cleaner
Bend about 1 inch of one end of the green pipe cleaner to a 90 degree angle to make the tree trunk.
Then bend the green pipe cleaner back and forth in a wavy zig-zag gradually tapering to small zig zags as you get near the end of your pipe cleaner (which will be the top point of your tree).
Using the gold pipe cleaner, bend a small zig zag pattern at one end. You'll need exactly 5 zigs and 5 zags that are about 1/2 inch long each. Cut the pipe cleaner, leaving about 1 inch after the last zig zag.
To shape your star, pinch each point of the zig zags and slightly bend them around into a circle to form a star shape with 5 points. Bend the remaining 1 inch of pipe cleaner straight out from the back of star.
Wrap the short length of gold pipe cleaner sticking out from behind the star around the green pipe cleaner end at the top of the tree.
Cut a length of gold cord, ribbon, or twine and tie it around the top of your tree shape.
Hang your pipe cleaner tree ornament on the Christmas tree!
