Last year I pinned a lovely ornament featured on Flea Market Style back in 2010. But unfortunately the photo was not accompanied by a tutorial. So, I set out to make my own paper-covered ornaments for my new Christmas tree this year.

Ingredients for Making Paper-Covered Ornaments

  • Christmas craft ornaments (from Hobby Lobby and 50% off – yay!!)
  • Mod Podge
  • craft sponge brush
  • glitter
  • cut up pieces of an old book (from my yard sale pile)
  • twine

I selected my tools, including that book from my yard sale pile. You could use a hymnal or a copy of a book that has special meaning for you to make these ornaments sentimental AND cute!

How to Make a DIY Paper-Covered Ornament

First, I cut up the strips of paper. And then I just Mod Podged (is that a verb?) the paper strips to the ornament. I mostly applied them vertically, but threw in some horizontal ones every now and then.

I did not take a single picture of the process, because it was so simple. And, also, my hands were sticky and somewhat covered in glitter. 🙂

Once the ornament was covered in paper, I took a pinch of glitter and lightly dusted the ornament. The first time I tried to add glitter, I tried to pour it from the bottle and that just looked clumpy. So, pinching a small amount and adding it to the ornament seemed to work much better. Tie a piece of twine to the top, hang it to let it dry and it’s all done.

Finished product = simple and cheap Christmas ornaments. (It did take about 30 minutes per ornament, so allow for a bit of time to accomplish this one.)

Have you made any ornaments this year? If so, I’d love to see them linked up in the comments!
