DIY Paper Rosette Ornaments

4 Materials
30 Minutes

I love making rosettes. There's something so pretty about them and they are so easy to make. I had this bright, colorful paper and turned them into these paper rosette ornaments and love how they turned out. They are so cute and fun and can be used on the tree, as gift tags, or hung around the house for some fun holiday home décor. I used a hot glue gun for this project, but you can use craft glue or tape.

I used cardstock in fun colors for this, but you can use black and white or traditional Christmas colors... whatever you want to match your home.

Start by making a bunch of rosettes. You make these, by folding your paper according style, then in half and connecting the sides with glue. You can see exactly how to make rosettes here.

You can use a template for your bows, but you don't have to. Fold a piece of paper in half and glue the ends to the center.

Cut the folded paper into a bow shape.

Add a strip of paper around the center of the bow and a couple pieces to the bottom.

Take a strip of paper and wrap around the rosette. Secure together with glue and add yarn for hanging. Make sure the strip is night and tight so the rosette doesn't move.

Add your paper bow!

Aren't these adorable? I love how cute they turned out and the kids couldn't wait to hang them on the Christmas tree.

    Holly Lengner-Lost Mom, depending on size made I see other uses. As a garland (glue together or on string/ribbon), attach to barrettes for hair ornaments, on cards (Christmas, thank you, thinking of you, etc.) For just a few ideas. I think CRAFTY YOU knows these tricks and were testing our imagination!!! Got my imagination going that's for sure. Merry Christmas and thank you for inspiration.

    I can see these as package decorations, instead of bows. The person can hang them on their tree after they open the package. I love that they are so inexpensive and easy!
