It should be no secret by now that I love Christmas, and gold, and if I had the time, I would craft some fabulous gold Christmas decoration (or seven) for every room of my house. But, alas, with Christmas comes a mile-long list of things to do, on top of the already overflowing to-do list that I normally have, so crafting fabulous decorations just doesn’t always happen. When I can create something fun and festive in less than an hour, though, I am totally doing that! That’s why I love my 3D Cardstock Ornament Garland – it was so simple and quick to make, but is so cute! (And a bonus that I used gold ribbon.)
Whether you need a little extra something to hang from your mantle, or wrap around your tree, this garland is super easy to make with just a few craft supplies you probably have on hand.
First, pick some cardstock. I am using a heavy double-sided scrapbook paper for my garland. Using either a circle punch or scalloped circle punch, cut circles to make your 3D ornaments. You will need 4 circles per ornament.
To make one of the ornaments, simply fold each circle in half.
Glue 2 of the circles together to make the halves of the ornament.
Place one half of the ornament on each side of your ribbon and glue them together with the ribbon in the middle.
Continue this process until you have a complete garland.
That’s it! A quick and easy but festive Christmas decoration! You could embellish with glitter, add some ribbon tassels, or customize it to a particular occasion other than Christmas. Don’t you love versatile crafts?
