Simple Modern Paper Strip Ornaments | Remodelaholic
The classic curved bell shape (like an onion, for lack of a more festive description) looks great made with paper strips. Changing the length of the strips gives you a larger or smaller curve, or fold in the middle for a diamond shape instead.
Christmas Tree Book Sculptures | The Sweetest Occasion
I love the simple classic look of this trio of reclaimed book Christmas trees. Get the template and get busy “sculpting” a whole forest in no time. They also look lovely hanging on the Christmas tree, of course.
Paper Holiday Village Mobile | Brigitte
If you’ve always wanted a holiday village but don’t have the mantel space for one, this mobile is a great solution! (Or, you could do it my way and just build a mantel for the village….) The tutorial for this one is in German, but with the photos, diagrams, and Google Translate, it should be easy to get it done.

Wrap some scrapbook paper around a foam cone, decorate it, stick in a bamboo skewer, and use a small wooden spool for a tree stand. It really is that easy!

The weaving looks tricky, but it all comes together so nicely. This is a great one for older grade school kids to perfect and then teach their friends!
Simple Modern Paper Holiday Garland | Curbly
This garland goes together quickly with a circle paper punch (watch for a sale or use a coupon!) and a sewing machine. You could probably even make it no-sew by using fishing line and double-stick tape. Another great craft to do while you’re watching a holiday movie…. perhaps Miracle on 34th Street fits your fancy?
Jumbo Curled Paper Snowflake | Tom Kat Studio
This technique of curling paper is called quilling, and it is easier than it looks and produces WOW results. Use smaller pieces of paper if you want to reduce the scale of these jumbo quilled snowflakes.
Easy Scalloped Christmas Ball Ornament | Remodelaholic
Okay, this one definitely requires a paper punch or fancy cutter. Unless you just feel like cutting out a bunch of tiny scalloped circles. Borrow one from a scrapbooking friend and get punching — the assembly on these Christmas balls is quick!
