DIY Geometric Decorative Piece


When decorating our home for Christmas this past season, I was looking for fun ornaments we could make ourselves.  I had searched the internet and saw this picture here.  I decided it would be fun to make these into larger tabletop decorative pieces.


So I adapted the idea and figured out how to do it using only two materials and costing about five dollars.

to your family and friends-7

Here is how you can do it too!


  • You will need a package of gold or silver straws (if you are wanting your shape to look like metal – or else you could do any color of choice), a matching pack of chenille stems and scissors.
  • Now take a few chenille stems twisting them together to create one long stem.
  • String on several straws and form a triangle.
  • I kept attaching triangles on top of one another (attched by the chenille stems) and then combined two pyramid shapes together making a diamond.
  • You could get more complicated than this, but it was tiring my brain out think about the math.  Let’s just say that Geometry was not my strength in school days – ha!
  • This whole project took maybe ten minutes.


You could group several together or hang some on the wall.  I like keeping mine here with our antique books and rustic wood frame.
