Paper Christmas Balls
Paper Christmas balls are so much fun to create and, hung in your Christmas tree, they are quite impressive!
- Cardstock paper with Christmas print (different on each side)
- Glue dots
- Cup (or anything round that you can trace)
- Craft wire
Trace twelve circles on the cardstock paper. If you don’t have printed cardstock, you could always have children draw Christmas designs on plain cardstock.
Cut out the circles.
Fold the circles in half and stack them, rotating heads or tails for the printed cardstock. Tie the craft wire around the middle to secure the papers together. Tuck the small piece of string through and tie to create a hanger.
Place a glue dot on the side, about one third from the bottom.
Fold the part with the glue dot over and place the second glue dot on the edge of the next one, about one third from the top.
Continue this pattern all the way around until your Christmas ball is complete.
That’s it! Now you have a beautiful Christmas ball to hang in your tree!
