Last month when I was shopping at a local craft store for the supplies to make the kids' Laterne I happened to stumble upon a super cute Paper Ornament kit. I figured it would be an easy little craft to work on one night when I was either bored or procrastinating on doing my homework.
It came with everything needed to make 7-8 ornaments. The strips were pre-cut and punched which made things so much more easier for me. But, there were no directions. I'm the type of person who reads and follows directions. It was pretty simple to figure out by looking at the picture through.
I think they turned out ok. The kids enjoyed selecting the paper for each ornament, too. But it was a bit too difficult for them to help me build them. Maybe next year.
I hung them above our front window with some ribbon. You should have seen the kiddos' faces when they came home from school and seen the ornaments hung up.
Even though this came in a kit it would be super easy to make your own. You just need an assortment of beads, wire, and paper strips. And wouldn't these be a cute for Valentine's Day?
What do y'all think? Any other fabulous DIY Christmas decorations that you've tried? Please share. I'm always looking for little crafts to do.
