Print off your templates and cut out a circle and shape for each craft. If you are creating the tissue paper ornament you will need to cut 2 template shapes that match. Use the guide in the middle of your selected shape to make a quick snip then cut out the rest. Once you have everything cut out, you’re ready to get started!
String Art Ornament:
Cover your circle with a layer of glue. Then start adding yarn or string until you cover the circle. Place to the side and allow to dry!
Add a good amount of white glue onto the full circle side of your ornament. Then place your ribbons one line at a time until you cover the whole circle. Just like we did above with the yarn. It is OK for them to hang over the edges! Place to the side and let dry.
Tissue Paper Ornament:
For this ornament, you will need 2 matching shape templates. Both with the shape removed. Cut some tissue paper into thin strips. Use a glue stick around the edge of the shape. Add the tissue paper until the whole shape is covered. Allow the glue to dry.
Attach the top half of your ornament, ink side down, with a glue stick or white glue. Then trim your edges. Next, punch a hole near the top. Last, add some yarn or string and your paper holiday ornaments are ready to hang on the tree!Don’t forget to add the date to the back!
