DIY: Christmas tree decoration made of paper
Christmas Tree Decorations Crafting can actually be done using a variety of materials – paper, cardboard, fabric, natural materials such as wood, nuts, fruits, etc. What you choose depends on how you “see” your Christmas tree decorations. Most DIY ideas are easy to imitate, and are even suitable for toddlers. Of course, it’s clear that paperworking is the easiest. Using stencils made from construction paper or cardboard, you can cut out various figures – Santa Claus, snowmen, reindeer, etc. – and hang them on the Christmas tree. And if you want original three-dimensional ornaments, you could fold stars, make snowflakes, make flowers using techniques like quilling or origami.
Christmas tree decorations are made of natural materials and fabric
Very original, the DIY ornaments look made of felt or fabric remnants. It is not necessary that you can sew – with the hot glue gun tinkering is also very easy. Santa Claus, stars, snowflakes, little fir-trees, gingerbread men – choose the motive you like best! The finished figures can then be decorated to taste with pearls, sequins, glitter, buttons, lace, etc. Additionally decorate and hang. No less attractive is the home-made decoration with natural materials. The pine cones, for example, can be hung up very easily and can be used to make interesting ornaments, such as cute little angels. For this purpose, you only need wooden beads for the head (attach them with the hot glue gun) and white paper to cut out the wings. But even if they are only decorated with a bow, the pine cones make a beautiful Christmas tree decoration – the same applies to other types of nuts such as chestnuts and acorns, berries and mistletoes, as well as the dried orange slices. These are actually very easy to do at home, and as a result, you get a fragrant decoration that really smells like Christmas! The same applies to the cinnamon sticks, which can also be attached to the Christmas tree.

As a basis for homemade Christmas tree decoration you can also use white styrofoam balls and decorate them with any color, glitter, beads, buttons, rhinestones, etc. You could also use the original decoupage technique, where you can use paper napkins to create real little works of art yourself! On the market you will also find transparent Christmas tree balls that can be opened. These can not only be decorated, but also filled to taste – for example, with marshmallows, aromatic rosemary sprigs, etc. Be creative, and also use household items that are already useless, such as old light bulbs that are quite light turn into funny snowmen (see our photos for examples)!
