Easy Paper Christmas Decorations

Make sure you follow my Christmas board for more ideas, and don’t forget to save the pin for later.

Well this is going to be a wrap for Christmas decorations for this year, and we are ending on a nice easy one that you don’t need anything special for. Hopefully it will keep your little ones busy for a while during the Christmas holidays.

You will need:

  • Paper
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Thread

You can see the lines that YC is cutting out.

On the piece of paper draw lines across is. We made our strips of paper the width of our ruler as it was easier than having to measure things out. You can have as many strips as you like, as long as it is an odd number. Generally we used 5 of them.  Although the next part might be harder for little ones to do, this first part is a great way to develop fine motor and scissor skills. YC helped me cut them out, while I put them together (she did also help press the stapler).

When you have your strips you will need to keep 2 of them at their original length, 1 will need to be cut smaller and the last 2 will need to be a length that is between the longest and shortest ones.

To stack them start with one longest. On top of that place a middle length one. Next the shortest one, another middle sized one and finally a long one.

Make sure that the strips are all in line at the top and staple them together.

See the outer pieces bulging outward.

Now line up the bottom of them as well. When you do this the longer pieces will bow out to create the ornament shape. Staple them at the bottom to secure it.

Finally either tie or staple some thread to the top of it so that you can hang them up.

I hope that you all have a very merry Christmas.
