Today I am sharing with you a handmade ornament I made for a blogger ornament exchange I am a part of!
Erlene at My Pinterventures partnered 80+ bloggers to exchange ornaments and to share our creations or special finds with you! Over the course of 14 days, a group of ladies will be sharing our ornament tutorials or shopping trips to give you lots of holiday inspiration.
My ornament is super simple and can be tweaked to fit any Christmas style. Even your children could get in on the design and process of this craft.
Here are the instructions on how to make a layered paper punch ornament.
Supplies I needed for this project were: various scrapbook papers in Christmas patterns/ colors, Styrofoam ball, Styrofoam glue, ribbon and a paper punch (small round circle).
Begin by punching out various circles in the different papers of your choice.
Using the Styrofoam glue, begin gluing on your paper circles overlapping each other. I did not worry about a specific pattern but glued them on randomly for a more eclectic look.
I did one-half of the ball, then I placed it in a cup to dry. This was just so it wouldn’t start rolling all over my table. Then I began the other half with the goal of meeting in the middle. There is a natural line in the middle of the styrofoam which helped me know where the middle of the ball was located.
I used lots of glue and did not press the circles all the way flat instead left them up so it was easier to layer underneath each one.
After finishing the gluing. Let dry and cut the ribbon, to hang the ornament. I attached the ribbon with a straight pin, then glued one last circle over the pin to conceal it.
The finished ornament.
I love how it turned out!
