Making a Paper Plate Ornament

Here's an inexpensive kid's craft for making paper plate ornaments. It would be a perfect little station for the kids if you're hosting a Christmas party!


You will need an assortment of markers, art scraps (foam, paper), glue, stickers, pipe cleaners, beads, any other items you have at home will work!

Total Time: Varies on child


  • foam plate (or paper plate)
  • markers/paint stick
  • hot glue
  • stickers
  • pipe cleaners


  1. Use a foam or paper plate, cut out a circle. Have your child decorate circle (to resemble ornament.)
  2. They'll be able to do any creation they want. My son cut strips of foam to resemble a Christmas tree and topped it off with a sticker star. The hot glue green is the base he says.
  3. He used a scrap piece of a sticker to cut a square for the ornament cap.
  4. He finished it off with pipe cleaner bent as an ornament hanger and secured that with tape. I wrote JOY. His ornament is ready to hang on the tree!
