20 Minutes
Easy

Super easy paper ornaments. These ornaments take about 20 minutes to make, I made these while watching tv at night.
Supplies you will need:
5 Sheets Paper (I used computer paper)
White craft glue
A pen or pencil
A round object (I used a candle)
A small round object (I used a quarter)
String (I used to jewelry elastic cord)
Spacer beads (two per ornament)
The 5 sheets of computer paper gave me 20 pieces per ornament.
There is a template on my site if you don't have anything to draw your own circles. This ornament is about the size of a baseball when finished. I have made larger ones by using only two circles on a sheet of paper instead of four circles.

Flip the last piece of paper over so the smooth side will be facing the second bead.  Squeeze and tie it off then make a loop to hang it by.

    I am now 71 and we did this as children with my mother. Instead of white we used metallic foil christmas wrapping paper. What a colorful grouping these stars then make. We even hung them on the ceiling or in the windows. They are beautiful.
