Steps to Make Christmas Paper Decorations

Step 1:

Print and cut the paper ornament designs that you chose. Use a printer and then cut the outline. You can either reduce the size to make smaller paper ornaments or increase it, print it on two sheets to create a larger one.

Step 2:

Using a cylindrical object, like a chapstick, curl each petal bit. The purpose of this is so that it will be much easier to glue the paper crafts into a ball shape. There will be 6 petals total and you will be gluing them into 3 pairs.

Place a small dab of glue on the first petal, take the opposite petal then glue them together at the top. Continue with the next two pairs of petals until you’re done with everything.

Step 3:

And you’re done! Get your strings, attach some embellishments, and you have your holiday decorations for your Christmas tree.

Hang them in your Christmas tree, some branches you have laying at home that you found outside or bought at a garage sale, or on top of a shelf as a centerpiece.

hi! I'm shannon

I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
