Colorful 3D Sewn Paper Ornaments… a simple and inexpensive way to decorate your Christmas tree this year!
I love changing up my holiday decorations every year, but all that change can become pricey. This year I challenged myself to create a tree entirely out of paper. These colorful 3D sewn paper ornaments were one of my DIY creations and they were so simple to make I just had to come here to share them with you.
Hey everyone! It’s Kara from A Kailo Chic Life, and I am so excited to share how easy these ornaments were to make. All you need are minimal sewing skills and a sewing machine and you will be on your way to making the cutest and most inexpensive ornaments.
- Colorful card stock in your choice of colors
- Large paper punch, paper cutter, or vinyl cutting machine
- Sewing machine and thread
Now that is a short supply list! Begin by using your cutting instrument of choice to cut out shapes from your card stock. You will need 4 shapes the same size for each ornament. I cut various sized circles using a scrapbook paper cutter, but you can also use a vinyl cutting machine like a Silhouette or Cricut to cut more intricate shapes like diamonds or hexagons.
Once you have your shapes cut, layer the 4 pieces on top of each other. Stitch (using a basting stitch) the paper together down the middle. Remove from the machine and cut the thread ends leaving about 4 inches off the top. Tie this thread in a knot for use as the loop to hang your ornaments on the tree.
Once they are sewn, fold out the pieces of paper to make your 3D ornaments.
These ornaments add a fun pop of color to your tree and look pretty cute as gift toppers too!
So now that you have seen how easy it is to make your own 3D ornaments, are you ready to give it a try?
