Handmade Ornaments With Book Pages

Handmade Decoupage Ornaments

Ornaments aren’t just for Christmas.  You can use ornaments year-round to decorate your home for each season, or holiday.  And even if you think that ornaments are only for Christmas, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make ornaments all year.  Make a batch with the kids and put them away until Christmas when you can put them on your tree, or give them away as gifts.

This ornament tutorial shows you how to make Christmas ornaments using pages from an old book.  Add some food coloring to the mod podge and you can create colorful ornaments for any season.  And if you don’t want to use an old book, you could use a magazine, comic book, newspaper or greeting card for this decoupage project.

Cinco De Mayo DIY Craft: Tissue Flower Garland

Tissue Paper Flower Garland

This tissue paper garland tutorial was created for a Cinco de Mayo celebration, but I think it’s perfect for any party or holiday gathering.  Use whatever color tissue paper that goes with your theme, or with the holiday.  So pastels would be perfect for Easter and a red/white combination could be used for Christmas or Valentine’s Day.

Cinco De Mayo DIY Craft: Tissue Flower Garland | Dress This Nest

“Today I have a simple (and super cheap) craft to share with you that will hopefully come in handy this weekend as decor for any parties you may be having on …dressthisnest.wordpress.com/…/cinco-de-mayo-diy-craft-tissue…”
http://dressthisnest.wordpress.com/2013/05/01/cinco-de-mayo-diy-craft-tissue-flower-garland/

This fun craft would be fun to make with the kids.  I love that it’s so inexpensive and just takes a little tissue paper to create.

To get a pretty detailed edge on the flowers, Yvonne used an edge puncher.  This gives the flowers a level of detailing that you can’t get with scissors, but you certainly could use the same steps in the tutorial to make a flower garland without the use of an edger.

Supplies needed:

  • Tissue Paper
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Edge Puncher
