DIY Newspaper Christmas Ornaments

Hi,

Are you already feeling the Christmas spirit, or do you belong to the group of those totally stressed-out by all the present buying, cookie baking and carol (or Christmas pop song) singing? It doesn’t really matter, because what I’m going to show you might calm your nerves. You can sit down on your own, or with family and friends and easily give a unique touch to those boring old Christmas ornaments that you’ve been using for the past five years.

But first I need to tell you something. This wasn’t my idea! I’ve seen pictures of those lovely ornaments on the internet and thought that I’d love to make some myself. I instantly fell in love with those in this article on the Flea Market Style homepage.

To get crafting, you need the following:

  • Christmas Ornaments (old, new, plastic, glass, whatever,…)
  • Newspaper (lots of it)
  • Glue (Decoupage Glue, Mod Podge,… The glue has to dry transparently)
  • Paintbrush
  • Glitter (if you like)
coat the bauble with newspaper snippets
coat the ornament with pieces of newspaper

Now you just shred the newspaper into pieces and glue them onto the Christmas ornament. When you’ve coated the whole ornament with newspaper, you should coat the whole ornament with glue. Sprinkle with glitter as long as the glue is sticky and let the ornament dry hanging.

Finally, you can enjoy your very own Christmas ornaments! 🙂
