Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Ornament Shapes
Once you have the easy paper ornament print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out multiple shapes at a time.
Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.
So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting.
Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.
Extra Tip For Cutting Circles:
You can also use craft hole punchers to make your circles and I HIGHLY recommend them. You will need a large circle and a smaller one.
They’re available at any craft store or possibly big name stores that sell craft items. Again, make sure you’re punching holes in more than one sheet at a time!
Step 3: How to Assemble
The kids will love using their imagination to create some awesome ornaments.
- choose your base ornament
- glue on the decorations
- optional: add glitter, decorate with markers, add stickers
- punch hole in the top of the ornament
- tie a bow with ribbon or string
- don’t forget to put your name on the back
And you’re finished!
This is such a fun and simple Christmas craft for kids. These paper ornaments are easy enough for preschool, elementary, Scouts or just a fun craft at home idea.
