One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to make crafts with the kids. The other is to eat my weight in Christmas Cookies. We make these ornaments every year and use them to decorate the tree, hang on doors, and even use in banners and decorations to hang from the ceiling. They are easy to make and require only a few supplies.
suppliesFor this project, you will need:

  • cardstock (I used a holiday pack from my local craft store)
  • scissors
  • stapler or tape
  • twine or ribbon
  • stickers, buttons, or some sort of embellishment
  • ruler

First, you want to take a ruler and make one inch lines on the back of the paper and then cut the paper into one inch strips.

Then you want to take two strips, make a cross and then use tape or a stapler to put them together.
3Take two more strips and place them over top the first two like shown below and then staple or tape.
4Then take your sticker, button, or other embellishment and place in the middle to hide the staple.
5When done, cut a piece of twine or ribbon to hang your ornament.
6That is all there is to it! I do suggest using bigger stickers or buttons than what I used to have a more polished effect. I must confess that I went with the sticker choices my kids wanted, so they are a little small.

I hope you found this tutorial simple, and please feel free to share how you personalized yours!
