Create a cute, easy-to-make ornament for you, or the outdoorsman in your life with this fun project.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

To begin, break your twigs into small pieces to create logs for your fire.  Glue 3 together into a triangle, leaving about a 1/2-inch gap in the center of the log triangle.

Cut 2 squares of each color of tulle–unwind some tulle, and cut pieces that are as long as the tulle is wide.  Lay the squares on top of one another in a stack, staggering the corners to make uneven edges.

Add a small dab of hot glue in the middle of the tulle stack, and stick a yellow pom-pom to the middle.  Add a little glue around the middle of the pom-pom, and carefully bunch, and twist the tulle up around the pom-pom to form the campfire.  Use caution, because the hot glue will seep through the tulle.  You want to use enough so the tulle will stick a bit, but not so much that it’s gushing through the holes into the tulle.

Add some glue around the inside edges of your log triangle, and carefully push the pom-pom end of the tulle campfire into the center of the logs.

Now use hot glue to attach more logs to around your campfire, and across the bottom.

Cut a length of jute, and tie the ends together to form a loop.

Add a dab of hot glue, and attach the non-knotted end of the jute to the middle of the campfire.

Continue to add dabs of glue, and twist at the base of the tule to help shape your fire.

Use your scissors to snip the ends of the tulle into points, if desired, to further shape your fire.

Hot glue two white pom-poms to the end of a toothpick–attach them right next to each other on one side.

Stick two more white pom-poms up against the first two, smashing them together to create a more cylindrical marshmallow shape.

Use your marker to color the marshmallows a bit to give them a roasted look.

Attach your roasting marshmallows to one of the logs around the fire.

Happy Crafting!
