How to make 3-D Paper Christmas Ornaments

stain_glass_Christmas_coloringHave you ever seen those beautiful three-dimensional paper Christmas ornaments? Well, they are really pretty easy to make. All you need is an ornament template, some paper, markers, scissors and glue, and you are on your way to creating some beautiful ornaments.

 

 

How_to_paper_Christmas_Ornament_pinYou will need 3-6 copies of the same ornament. You can create your own designs, use a free template like this one from Teachers Pay Teachers, or order a 3-D ornament Coloring Book.

 

First, color in several copies of the same ornament. It is best to color each one a little differently; it really adds variety.

 

 

Then cut them out and fold each in half with the colored sides together.

Match up the folded halves of the ornament and glue together with a glue stick. Repeat until all but the last two halves have been glued together.

 

Before you glue the last two sides together, place a looped piece of string in the crease and draw a line of white glue on the top.

 

Finally glue the last two sides together and hang on the tree from the loop.

 

You can do this with simple shapes and construction paper too!

Have Fun & Enjoy!
