“Paper Candy Ornaments” #TBCCrafters Hop

It’s that time of year again!!!  We’ve got our tree up, lights on the house and getting ready to wrap the gifts to put under the tree.  I figured I would make something this week to decorate the tree before we started filling up the underside with things for the family.  These are really easy to make and you can do it with whatever colors, paper type, etc. that you want.  You could even spray it with sparkle paint or something like that to add even more pizzazz.  Praying you all are getting ready to have a blessed CHRISTmas time with your families and I hope that you can have fun making these ornaments together.

Please be sure to comment and share this #TBCCrafters craft, I hope you like it!!

 

“Paper Candy Ornaments” Craft

Materials/Tools Needed:

  • Craft Paper (Color of your choice)
  • Scissors or Cutting Machine
  • Heavy-Duty Stapler 
  • Glue Dots or Tape
  • & Time

Candy Ornament

 

Instructions:

Being by cutting each 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper at 1″ on landscape so you end up with about 11 strips (the last strip was a bit too small, so I just saved it for another project).  Do this with each colored piece of paper.

Next, sort the pieces in a pile so that you have each color after the other.

Once you have them all sorted out (I was able to make 2 ornaments from the 2 sheets of paper, so divide as you wish), fold the top piece in half to show a guide of where to staple in the center.

Using a heavy-duty stapler, staple it in the middle.  I thought I was going to be able to use a regular stapler, but it couldn’t handle it, so I used my husband’s big boy and it worked great.

 Now, since you probably won’t be able to have the staple close like normal, use some pliers to bend it closed yourself.

Now, you’ll need to cut off one side of the color on each side, so that you don’t have 2 of the same color folded next to each other.  Using glue dots or tape, add a piece to the tip of each strip.

Fold each piece to the center to make them a rounded piece.

Once you have all of the pieces taped or glued, use your finger at the tips of all of the ends to make them more rounded and fill in the piece, since you’ll have some spaces where you removed the opposite colors.  Hang with clear fishing line or just use for tree ornaments. Hope you like it!!
