Christmas is coming and it’s time to get crafty! I decided to make paper sphere ornaments this year when I discovered I had limited options for the color scheme I wanted to use on our media room tree in the basement.
These ornaments are simple to make and with the help of a cutting machine can be made in about 20 minutes. But if you want to go old school and cut the circles by hand, I share a little circle cutting tip in the tutorial video.
The best part of this craft is that it is completely customizable to your style and color palette. Want an Christmas tree decked in orange or lilac? All you need is some card stock and some time. The same goes with your choice of paper patterns. If you wanted to create an old victorian style themed tree, choose papers that speak to that genre, lace, old newspaper etc.
This tree is far from done, but I wanted to start with these larger ormanets before going fully into tree decorating mode. Check back in a few weeks for the full reveal!!
