Real starfish belong in the sea but these sparkly star fish deserve a spot on your tree. Sparkling sequins bounce the light from your tree while the knots give the pieces much needed texture. Best of all these DIY starfish ornaments is simple once you master the french knot, although you could always just tie a knot and sew through the back if need be.
These felt starfish were crafted in subtle pastel shades but these would look great in neutrals or even some bright aquas or pinks. These starfish stuffies also look great adorning a gift or hanging from a mobile, read on for the tutorial and free DIY felt starfish pattern.
