Making a Folded Paper Christmas Tree Ornament

I love reusing/upcycling my children's artwork especially my daughter's! She loves her dotting markers so I figured I would incorporate them into homemade Christmas tree ornaments! These would also be nice as gifts (to grandparents, aunts, or uncles) or to pair with their gifts as a gift tag!

Total Time: 10-15 minutes + amount time for your child to create their artwork

Supplies:

  • child's art work creation (dot markers, markers, colored pens)
  • tape
  • paper
  • string
  • scissors
  • stapler
  • star foam
  • construction paper
  • glue

Steps:

  1. Find an art piece your child has just finished or no longer needs (ready to be tossed out).
  2. Cut the piece in half (it does not have to be an even cut in size). And fold accordion style.
  3. Staple one end as pictured, for each piece. Now it resembles a triangle (Christmas tree).
  4. Cut a piece of string/ribbon that is long enough to make a loop on the ornament as the hanger and tape at the tip of the stapled end.
  5. Using a foam star sticker - stick it onto the tip of your Christmas tree.
  6. Not to worry - if you don't have foam star stickers on hand, you can freehand and cut your own star from construction paper and hot glue in place!
