Easy to Make Paper Spiral Decorations

I am not totally sure what to call this particular craft, so I am going with paper spiral decorations. Not very exciting, but descriptive. I didn’t make these with my charges, instead I made them by myself to decorate the playroom with. They may look rather complicated, but they aren’t. They are relatively quick to make and look fantastic when hanging up. So if you need a last minute craft to keep little ones entertained, or just need a few more decorations look no further.

Make sure you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make these paper spiral decorations you will need:

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • String

If you have an A4 piece of paper turn it into a square. Start by folding it in half.

Then fold it in half again.

Next you have to cut slits up. You have to make sure you cut up the right way or it just wont work. I ruined about 3 of them this way. You need to make the main fold at the top, the side with the 2 folds to the left (bottom), and the completely open side to the right.

Now cut up from the bottom to almost the main fold.

Carefully open it up.

Starting at the centre, fold the 2 middle pieces together and glue them.

You then want to repeat that step with every other triangle (for want of a better word).

When you have finished one side, turn it over and do the same on that side.

Finally attach the string at the top.
