How to Make the DIY Easy Christmas Paper Wreath Ornament

What you need:

  • scissors
  • glue
  • color paper (yellow and red)
  • decorative bead or a button
  • red yarn

Step by Step Tutorial

The Wreath

Start by folding a sheet of (yellow) paper in half.

Step 1

Once folded in half, make another fold at the top (along the length).

Step 2

Make sure the folds are nice and crisp.

Step 3

Hold the paper folded and start making incisions with your scissors, and cutting strips until you reach the fold you made.

Step 4

Unfold the paper and apply glue to the upper folded part (one side only).

Step 5

Now gently bring the ends together, making the paper tube aligning the folds and sticking them together.

Apply light pressure so it stays in place.

Step 6

Cut off a strip or two (now paper loop) from one end of your tube.

Step 7

Apply glue to the part with no stips.

Step 8

Stretch the roll and glue it together to create a flower-shaped circle.

Step 9

The Bow

Cut out a red square.

Step 10

Fold it diagonally in half.

Step 11

Fold it once more.

Step 12

Now, make incisions almost to the center of the square.

Ensure not to go all the way – we don’t want to cut off the triangles.

Step 13

Apply glue to the center of the square and bend the ends of one triangle towards the center.

Step 14

Repeat the process on the opposite triangle.

Now, carefully cut off one triangle.

Step 15

We want to cut off a smaller triangle from the bigger one.

Make incisions following the outer lines of the triangle towards the center.

Step 16

Once we cut off the triangle shape, we must cut off a tiny triangle from both ribbon strips.

Step 17

Apply glue and place a neat bead in the center of the bow.

You can also use a button or anything similar.

Step 18

Cut a piece of red yarn, make a loop, and glue it behind the bow.

Step 19

Glue the bow onto the yellow wreath.

Step 20

Your DIY easy Christmas paper wreath ornament is finished!

Place it wherever you prefer – use it as a Christmas tree ornament, as a present decoration, or dangle it from front doors or windows.
