Every year I have a long list of Christmas projects I hope to get done. Reality looks like very few of those actually happening – haa! That’s okay though, as long as things are getting done, and I’m taking the time to enjoy the season, that’s what really matters. These 3D paper ornaments are a project I’ve been wanting to try making for a few years now. I noticed some really pretty ones in Scandinavian Christmas decor photos, and wanted my own. They weren’t popular around here yet, so I knew I’d have to DIY it! Of course now it seems like there are a lot of stores selling them, but I had to try making my own since I got the idea in my head and knew I wouldn’t be able to let it go till I tried!
Overall these are really simple and easy to make. They are a bit time consuming and tedious. Lots of cutting and gluing. But nothing hard and it’s the kind of craft you can do while watching a show or listening to a podcast!
These 3D paper ornaments aren’t what I would call honeycomb, but when I was trying to figure out what they were even called, that seemed like a popular title for them. So that’s what we’re calling them! What do you think, are they something you would make?
- card stock paper
- ornament printables (one, two, three)
- ruler & X-ACTO knife (optional, for easier folding)
- string / ribbon / waxed thread
Watch the video below for how I put these together!
