Christmas tree ornaments

We so often end up reusing the Christmas tree ornaments every year. This year, why not create your own handmade ornaments and make your Christmas unique? There are so many ways to brighten up your ornaments. You can tie beautiful ribbons around them or even fill them with candy and twinkling LED lights. Spending time with your kids making your own one-of-a-kind decorations is a great bonding experience that will fill your kids with a sense of pride.

The decorations come in three charming patterns (star, tear drop and diamond) which you can open and close and fill with sweet goodies. To make your decorations last a long time, try making them with thick paper and making clean, deep folds. One of these would make a great present to a visiting friend!

Bring a romantic mood to your home by putting LED lights inside decorations and placing them about your room. Choosing thin, semi-transparent paper will create a beautiful diffuse light. You can keep these versatile creations around your house as decorations all year round.

Our shell ornament includes three classy golden designs. You join its top to its bottom by making deep folds.

You can make your own one-of-a-kind ornament by using thread as a ribbon or by choosing different types of paper. All our shapes and designs go together perfectly, so feel free to mix and match to your liking. There are four ornaments in total, from left to right: tear drop, diamond, star and shell. Using different threads with different colors gives them a different vibe, so get creative! The vibe changes depending on the type and color of the string as well, so please try out several combinations.
