Quick and Cute Ornaments to Make

This weekend holds the last two days of the Fall Fest Online Crop at Scraptacular! For the crop, I have put together this Make & Take for everyone to try out. If you are looking for a FUN batch of Challenges, Games, and Make &Takes....not to mention PRIZES!!!... come on over to Scraptacular for the weekend and play along!!


Here is a quick and easy ornament to make out of your scraps, odds and ends, or random leftover papers. They're Pretty cute too!

We are going to be making these!

You will need: Scraps of PP, a trimmer, good adhesive, and a ribbon.

Cut the PP into two each of the following lengths x 1/2″: 2″, 3″, 4″, 5 1/2″, and 7″.

Adhere the two 2″ pieces together to make a strong and stable center post.

Adhere ends of 3″ strip to 2″ strip. It makes a nice arch.

Repeat on other side of 2″ strip.

Continue in this fashion for the remaining strips going up in size accordingly.

Now all the strips are used and it is time for shaping the ornament, if desired, and the ribbon.

If you do not wish to shape your ornament further than it already is, skip ahead to the ribbon part.

If you want to “fluff and puff” your ornament, pinch one end and gently bend the sides equally to desired shape.

Put ample adhesive on each side of one pointy end of the ornament and attach the ribbon in a loop.

There you have it! A simple little decoration in a jiffy!

Hope you have a great weekend!
