Paper Ornament Supplies:
- Paper Pad *double-sided paper works best and a tad on the thicker side. Scrapbook paper is too flimsy!
- Pony Craft Beads
- Pipe Cleaners
- (Optional) Cricut or Silhouette cutting machine.
I have provided both the SVG files and the printable/traceable files for you to use. Print the template and cut by hand or upload the SVG and let your Cricut or Silhouette do the heavy lifting, er cutting!
I cut mine on my Explore Air 2. You can also cut these by hand, no problem!
How to Make a Christmas Tree Paper Ornament
Time needed: 15 minutes.
- Upload the SVG into your software.
- Resize if Needed
The files and printables should be sized appropriately but if you need to resize, do that now.
- Cut the Cardstock
Using Scissors or your Cutting Machine, cut the paper circles. You can cut all the same color circles for monochromatic ornaments, or you can repeat this cut step with multiple colors of paper and mix and match during assembly!
- Build the Tree
-Take a pipe cleaner and fold over one end about half an inch to form a small loop.
- Start Building the Ornament
Add a bead, then the smallest circle, another bead, the next larger size circle, a bead and so forth until you reach the largest paper circle and end with a bead.
- Complete the Felt Ornament
Trim the bottom of the pipe cleaner leaving about 1 inch. Loop that back over like the top to secure.
- Add Star
Add the Star to the top and hang. You can hang from the pipe cleaner loop or add an additional ribbon for hanging.
I used two types of beads. Pearl beads in the image above and colored pony beads in the picture below! Feel free to use what you have on hand or mix and match!
TIPS FOR PAPER TREE ORNAMENTS
- If making these as a group, it helps to pre-cut the cardstock circles.
- Mix and match colors or use all the same color for the tree! Be creative!
- You can also use these along with a long ribbon as garland for your mantel!
