25 Easy Origami Christmas Ornaments Perfect For Your Tree

The second list will be about origami Christmas ornaments you can make for your own Christmas tree or to give it as a gift. 

From when I started to fold I always said I will make my own Christmas ornaments, and have a tree decorated only with them. I did made some one year, but never have I ever had only my decorations in the tree. So this is the year I will do that.

Do-it-yourself paper Christmas decorations: schemes, templates, master classes

Neither bright balls from the supermarket, nor lights flashing in different colors, nor expensive designer sets for decorating Christmas trees can compare with handmade decorations.

Of course, such decorations from the supermarket will make an evergreen guest bright, modernly decorated, but they are unlikely to be able to carry the New Year's mood so joyfully as toys made on their own.

There are a lot of ways to make Christmas decorations, but the most simple, attractive and not requiring much time are toys made of paper. To create them, you may need quite a bit, improvised materials that are stored in every hostess at home. Stock up on a bit of patience and wings for a creative flight of fancy.

Christmas balls

What is the most common decoration on a Christmas tree? Of course, balls! You can always buy glass, plastic ones in the store, but we will try to make them from thick paper. This includes colored cardboard, old postcards and covers of unnecessary magazines. Colored cardboard balls, plain, will give the Christmas tree or the room that you want to decorate a single style, and multi-colored balls will bring the atmosphere of a holiday, magic and a winter fairy tale.

#1 Do-it-yourself paper toy for a Christmas tree: a master class with a description

Before you sit down to make a new toy, prepare:

  • thick paper;
  • Use old magazines, cartons or candy boxes with colorful designs;
  • glue, PVA works best;
  • scissors;
  • compasses or any other object that you can draw around to get a perfect circle.

Take your cardboard and trace twenty-one identical circles on it, then cut them out with scissors. Each circle is to be folded as follows: bend the circle in half twice, on one side and the other, then straighten it, this will mark the center of the circle.

Bend only one side again, so that the edge of the circle is exactly in the intended center. Bend again so the two sides, so you get a triangle. In one of the twenty circles, cut out this triangle, it will serve as a kind of stencil for the rest of the circles. All that remains for you is to impose a triangle on the rest of the circles, circle it and bend the edges of the circles outward along the office.

Take the first ten circles and glue them in a strip, alternating: five down - five up. Glue the resulting strip into a ring, this will serve as the basis for the toy.

Divide the remaining ten by five and glue them into a circle. By gluing them, you will get two caps.

The top and bottom cover must be glued to the base in the same way. Consider a loop to hang your toy from.

Family photo toys

Some types of paper balloons can be made using family photos. Such New Year's toys will be the most special, because the important and significant moments of the outgoing year will remain with you, and the next New Year's toy will remind you of pleasant moments again.

Christmas balls of paper

9 and do-it-yourself glue - template + master class

To make such New Year's paper toys, you need to print out the templates. We will use two colors: white and red. Cut out white stripes and glue them sequentially to the circle. We perform the same actions with red stripes. When both parts are ready, lay them on top of each other in the opposite direction. We connect them. We take out all the red stripes from the bottom up. Next, repeat the same with white stripes. After four similar actions, we begin to form a ball. Alternate red and white stripes until the length is over. At the end, we seal the hole with a paper circle, on which we sew beads. The toy is ready!

Volumetric ball of paper strips - step by step tutorial with photo

Let's make light balls for the New Year's garland. From colored paper cut four identical strips. We stack them on top of each other in the form of a snowflake. We connect the opposite ends and fasten with glue. We make such balls of different colors. It remains only to thread the rope through them.

Snowman

Do-it-yourself volumetric paper strip snowman

This method of making a snowman is similar to the previous one. Cut long strips of white paper. We put them on top of each other and connect the ends, forming a ball. Let's make the same from shorter strips. We fasten them together. With a black felt-tip pen we draw a mouth, eyes and buttons. We make a scarf from a colored strip. The cap will serve as a form for cupcakes.

Making this easy snowman is great for little kids. Prepare 3 rectangles of different length and width. We turn each of them into a cylinder. We glue them together. Draw a face and add buttons.

Lanterns

Let's figure out how to make such fabulous Christmas lanterns. First, cut out the details of the lantern from cardboard. We glue the walls and the upper part of the craft. Attach the handle to the lamp. These lanterns can be coated with any paint. We put a candle inside, and the lantern looks like a real one.

Traditional lanterns can be made from colored paper. We bend the sheet in half. I put it with the fold towards me. From above we retreat 2-3 centimeters and mark the line.

We make a pen from a paper strip.

Clapperboard - make a Christmas tree clapperboard toy

Take a tube from toilet paper or from a roll of bags. We tie the tip of the ball into a knot and cut off the main part from it. We pull it on the bushing. From glossy paper and sequins we will make a filler for a cracker. We glue the sleeve with colored or kraft paper. To activate the baby cracker, you just need to pull its tail.

House

Miniature house on the Christmas tree - New Year's craft "cut and glue"

Let's print out the scan of the houses on colored paper. Carefully cut them out. To make it easier to bend the walls, you can push the folds with a ruler. We connect the walls, open the windows and the New Year's houses are ready.

Gnome

Adorable paper cone gnomes - cut and glue Christmas craft

Print templates on white or colored paper. From a white sheet we will make a beard. To do this, cut into thin strips and twist with a pen or scissors. We put several layers on top of each other. Glue the beard to the bottom of the gnome. Add a face from a pink sheet. Attach the nose and eyes. Slightly darken the edges and twist the hat into a cone. New Year's toy is ready.

Origami Christmas tree - step by step photo instructions

Origami Christmas tree can be made from paper without glue. Take a square green leaf. Fold it diagonally and in half. We turn the corners of the square inward so that we get a rhombus. We put it in a "deaf" corner away from you. Take the left corner of the rhombus and bend it in the center. With the left we repeat the same. Cut off the bottom of the figure and make four cuts on each side. We bend a corner on each resulting strip. It remains only to straighten the Christmas tree.

Star

Volumetric paper star on the Christmas tree - step by step instructions with photo
