DIY SUSTAINABLE FIBER ART ORNAMENT

Use your Macrame + Fiber Art Scraps to create a super cute ornament

Do you remember Sand Art?


I want to share this DIY Zero-Waste Fiber Art Projects that shares the same fundamentals to create this super cute fiber art ornament + practice sustainability at the same time!


At The Aquariust, I make + teach a ton of macrame + fiber art! Inevitably, there are fibers left over + it can feel sad to throw it away


A lot of my workshop students ask what to do with their macrame + fiber art scraps?


This super easy project is designed to use those scraps to create a cute + unique piece of fiber art Ornament Adornment made with your left over macrame cord!


SUPER EASY SUSTAINABLE ART!


  • Save your Fiber Scraps as you work


  • Bundle them together in similar sizes (cut down to no longer than 6 inches)


  • Brush the dickens out of them with a paddle brush or a dog/animal brush (any brush that has lots of surface area + many bristles!)


  • Keep brushing - I promise they will brush out! (If your macrame cord is more of a rope, untwist the 3-4 strands of the rope + THEN brush out)


  • Once you've got them all brushed out, trim them to your desired size of fiber bits (I like to trim them super fine to look like confetti!)


  • Using a fillable clear ornament, layer your fiber trimmings to your hearts desire


  • Admire the adorableness mixed with the sustainability + smile



All the best,
