Christmas Ornaments

Painting paper mache or untreated wood? Pretty much any paint will stick to it. Powder paint, artists acrylics, and craft paints will all work fine.

Like most patterns, there are many different ways to use this one. For simple ornaments that are great for kids, follow the directions below. For something a bit more complicated follow the paper mache intructions. It takes a little longer but the results are worth it.


  1. Thick Cardboard
  2. Printed Pattern
  3. Construction Paper
  4. Colouring Supplies
  5. Glue
  6. String
  7. Scissors
  8. Cheneille Stems, Wool (optional)
  9. Sparkles (optional)


1. Right click and save the images to your computer. Print them off and color the shapes with felts, pencil crayons, or even paints.

2. Cut out each shape.

3. Trace the shapes out once on thick cardboard and once on colored construction paper.

4. Glue the colored shape to the front of the cardboard and the construction paper shape to the back.

5. Now is the time to add any finishing decorations. Wool or a cheneille stem can finish the edge nicely, and you can never have too much glitter :)

6. Last, but not least, punch a hole in the top of the finished ornament and use string or wool to make a hanger. All done! Now hang up your ornaments on the tree or give them to someone special for christmas.
