The best part about it is that you do not need to make these ornaments exclusively for Christmas. You can use them anytime there is a festival knocking on your door!
What You Will Need:
Tissue paper in a number of colours (substitutes: wrapping or crepe paper)
Camlin Krafty Glue Stick
Plain Ornaments and Hooks
Steps to Make the DIY Tissue Paper Fringe Ornaments:
Cut ½’’ strips of the tissue paper. Lay them all out in a pile. Then, cut fringes on them. Leaving 1/8’’ from the top, slit ¼” fringes on the edge.
Cut out a small 1” diameter circle on one of your chosen papers. This will be glued to the bottom of the ornament to create a base.
After the base is done, glue one of the fringed tissue paper strips around the ornament. Once the fringe goes all around it, cut and glue it in place. Continue this step, until the ornament looks this:
Switch to another colour of fringed tissue after going around with the ornament with one hue a few times. Use this new coloured fringed tissue to repeat step 3. After a few rounds, the ornament should start looking like this:
Remove the cap and the loop, and glue the fringe to the top of the ornament. The cap and the loop can be placed back again for a nice, clean look.
The tissue paper fringe ornament is now ready to be put on the Christmas tree, or hung as a home décor item. Repeat the process on other ornaments to have many more cutesy decoration items for your tree or festivities!
