Paper Rudolph Ornament

|

Paper Ornaments are SO FUN to make. They can be surprisngly easy (depending on what technique you use) but are most definitely versatile and come in many different seasonal ornament designs. I love making the “paper bauble” variety and seeing what themes I can adapt them too. Of course just using colourful paper makes these paper baubles super easy and pretty.. however, you can also turn them into something new and decorative. Recently we made some ADORABLE Paper Unicorn Ornaments.. and today we have these quirky, quick and fun Paper Rudolph Ornament! I couldn’t quite decide HOW to make this Rudolph ornament.. so we actually have TWO versions.. the one here today, which I call the “Rudolph” ornament and also another “Reindeer Ornament” (which comes with printables and can also be turned into a fabulous greeting card). I think the Rudolph ornament is more fun.. and in some ways easier to make, whilst the Reindeer Ornament is prettier and has the handy printable template too (in two different colours – brown and tan!).

How to Make Paper Baubles (step by step)

The craft, I believe is really easy and quite effective.

1) Cut out 8-10 circle. You need to cut these as perfectly as possible for the finished effect to be at its best. We used a small cup to trace the circles. We then also cut out the reindeer antlers, nose and eyes (see step below).

2) Fold circles in half. Make a good crease.

3) Stick the left side one to the right side of the other. I found that if I held them for Red Ted he could do all the sticking. When you get to the last one, add the ribbon. Then glue the first circle to the last.

4) Even them all out a bit, if necessary add a tiny bit more glue and done!

5) Now cut out some paper Reindeer Antlers, some big white eyes (draw a black pupil on it) and a red nose.

6) Fold down one of the Paper Ornament segments – only 1-2mm- and glue down the eyes and nose.
