Tis the season . . . to make ornaments! Of course you can trim the tree with handcrafted paper ornaments, but think of all of the other ways you can use them this holiday season. They can be used as tie-ons to pretty up a package or you can create your own ornaments for ornament exchanges at parties and get-togethers throughout the season. Creating handmade paper ornaments with your friends, family and children is a great way to create holiday memories as well . . . those memories can then be scrapbooked because hey, we are paper crafters!
12 Days of Paper Ornament Tutorials
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me tutorials on how to create unique paper ornaments! Most of these can be created with supplies you have on hand like vintage book pages and scrapbook paper and toilet paper rolls. Tell me I’m not the only one who saves every paper towel and toilet paper roll . . . if you don’t, that cute birdhouse ornament tutorial will change your mind! Here are 12 more DIY paper ornament tutorials to get you in the holiday spirit.
Printable Paper Ornaments
If you have a printer, scissors, and some adhesive, you are ready to start creating ornaments made from printables. These charming Santas would make fun ornaments or table décor. This printable house ornament is the cutest thing ever and I just may be making several to tie onto gifts and hang on the tree! Click, print, and cut the following assortment of printables for easy holiday crafting.
Paper Ornaments for the Kids
I have already started planning crafts to create throughout the holiday season with my daughter and making paper ornaments is at the top of the list. Together we will be creating ornaments for her to give as gifts to family and teachers, and I hope they will treasure them as much as I will treasure the time creating them with her. She has chosen to make these adorable paper lantern ornaments this year and I may be more excited than she is! The following tutorials are cute, kid friendly, and once again use supplies already on-hand so they are budget friendly too which is always a plus this time of year.
