The one with the paper ornaments

Earlier this month, my blog bud Mia from MossyJojo asked me to join in on a DIY party. I love parties, and I love making things. So, yes please! For this DIY post I made paper ornaments.

The theme: Christmas
The challenge: up to 4 materials only



What you'll need:

  • paper strips, I used strips of semi transparant paper, that are 30 x 2,5 cm (around 12 x 1 inch)
  • twine
  • needle
  • thread

What you'll need to do:
These are super easy to make, I think the pictures don't need any explanation.










I think they needles doesn't count as one of the four materials, so I guess I was allowed to make these too. Before cutting the paper up in strips, I made lines with a ruler, added some neon washi tape, and wrote some titles of Christmas songs on the paper. I also experimented a bit with different sizes.



Don't forget to have a look at the other Christmas Challenge DIY's

  10. This is a cool idea--so customizable! Like others, the one with the words especially appeals to me. The only crafting going on here has been my husband's pomanders--but they're worth another mention! http://lovethosehandsathome.wordpress.com/2013/12/10/christmas-senses-the-smell-of-oranges-and-cloves/

  11. These are so pretty! They'd make lovely baubles, and the neon one is especially fun, it's so colourful :) I'm so behind on holiday crafting, I think I'm going to have to be a bit less ambitious! xx

  12. I participated this year for a Christmas ornament swap with my team. My pair was a girl from Australia, which I was so exited to find out then she is Polish! Well, this was fantastic because that remind me a time when I was in school and I had a pan-pall from Poland. I made a Christmas ornament for her and I hope to share the pictures in my blog soon:)
    I love your ornament Marieken so much, Thank you for inspiration!

  16. I usually cannot bring myself to work with paper (apart from printing my photos, of course) but when winter comes I'm all about it! I make paper stars (which you've already seen), paper snowflakes, garlands... And these ornaments look lovely. I think I will give them a go :)
