Dimensional Paper Tree Ornament

Design by Pamela Porter

Turn your lonely Christmas tree into a forest by adding dozens of these easy-to-make paper ornaments. Cut 5-, 4-, and 3-1/2-inch-diameter patterned-paper circles. Cut a slit in the center of each circle. Using decorative-edge scissors, trim around the edges of the circles, wrap the circles into cone shapes, and hot-glue the ends to secure. Cut three 18-inch-long wires and bundle them together with a short wire. Thread the cones in graduating sizes onto the wires, hot-gluing them in place on the inside. Curl the wire ends into spirals.

Editor's Tip: Vary your patterned papers and use different types of decorative-edge scissors to give each ornament a distinctive look.
