Hello! Each year I try to make a batch of ornaments to either give to family and friends and/or sell at a local arts and crafts fair. This year I decided to try fusing plastic bags, which I have never done before. I had been saving all my plastic bags for a while, hoping to come up with a fun project utilizing them.

I cut out two larger stars, overlapped them, then placed a smaller star in the middle. I was lucky to have a variety of colored plastic bags, and was able to come up with some fun arrangements. I punched a hole through the center then inserted a grommet. I made a total of about 30.

Thanks for looking!

Cool! I've always wanted to try fusing plastic, but could never figure out what I would do with it after fusing....this has given me all kinds of cool ideas for next Christmas!

Well made, and a bonus for environmental friendliness. Lucky you could find that many Christmas-coloured bags.

Excellent job!
