Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments for Kids

by Dinah Wulf

 

 A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about Crafting with Toilet Paper Rolls.  I thought the gift tag by All Things Paper was adorable so I thought I’d try and make it.  I thought this would be a perfect holiday Christmas craft to do with the kids… in fact I think I may mention it for my next play date.  It’s really easy and not too messy for little hands. Here is an Easy DIY Christmas Ornaments for Kids.

All you need is: toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls, glue, ribbon, hole punch, embellishments (rhinestones, glitter, paint, etc.)

First, bend the tube and cut out rings at the desired width.  I cut out seven rings with one toilet paper roll.

Next, arrange your design on a flat surface. I chose to make a flower.

Carefully glue each piece together.  In my case, I like to use hot glue because it’s easy and dries very quickly.  I carefully glued every other flower petal.

Embellish the ornament any way you wish.  I used a simple rhinestone because I like the organic look of the brown paper.  Consider painting or glittering as well.

Using a hole punch or craft punch, punch holes for your ribbon.

String your ornament and hang! Tah Dah! Also consider stringing several flowers and use them as a decoration for a party. P.S. Remind me to do my nails before I post a picture tutorial…
