This year was the year of paper Christmas ornaments! First it was the paper angel, then the Christmas hearts and now the paper starburst ornaments. In all honesty, I wanted to do 12 days of paper ornaments, but clearly it wasn’t my year ;). But for sure, next year when I can prep more.
Colorful paper ornaments
What I love about these ones is that they are SUPER simple to make yet so impactful with their fullness. Plus, add on the pretty cut out shapes (templates here) and it’s really so stunning. Of course, we had to put it into colorblock colors, but you could keep it all the same colors!
Paper Starburst ornaments
Materials (see above)
- Cut squares of 3″, 6 for each ornament (can be more can be less–have fun experimenting!)
- Fold the paper in half each way. Fold the paper on the diagonal each way.
- Now bring the corners together and bring the squares together along the diagonal.
- Create 5 more.
- Glue each square together to create a circle. Before you glue the whole thing together, insert a ribbon to hang as an ornament.
Note: If you’d like to use the templates to create some visual interest, cut those first either on the craft cutting machine or by hand.
