Geometric Icicle DIY Ornaments

Today I’m excited to be sharing one of the crafts from my new ebook, Christmas Paper Crafts, with Easy Peasy and Fun readers.

This book is a collection of 12 fun and easy paper craft ideas which are designed to be printed onto ordinary coloured construction paper (saving cost on ink!).

Does it snow where you live at Christmas? Where we live it’s mid-summer on Christmas day.

The cicadas are singing, the sun is blazing and people are wearing shorts and T-shirts or sleeveless summer dresses. We have no hope of ever seeing a real white, icy cold Christmas unless we make it ourselves! When I was a child I used to decorate our tree with cotton balls in an attempt to make it look snowy (it didn’t), but now I’ve got a better idea.

This year we decided to add a touch of winter frost to our tree with the help of some geometric icicles. Create them in shades of blue for an icy cold look, brrrr! The template comes in two different sizes to give the icicles some variation.

this template

How To
1) Print the template out. Each page makes two icicles.

2) Use your butter knife and ruler to score along the dotted lines.

3) Cut out around the black outlines.

4) Fold along each scored line.

5) Tie a piece of string into a loop and sticky tape it so that it hangs over one of the top points.

6) Put a bit of glue on each of the tabs and carefully fold into shape, gently pressing the
icicle closed.

Now you can go hang it on your tree!
