DIY Scalloped Ornaments

I love these, so very easy to make and I think they are a pretty addition to any tree (or even an IKEA jewelry holder 🙂
I chose a color palette of gold, mint green and light pink.  I adore pastels and getting out of the rut of traditional Christmas colors is always fun!

Paper mache ornament balls (or any plain ball ornament)

Mod Podge (or any glue)

How To Make Scalloped Ornaments

Punch out your circles on tissue paper.  The gold paper is a kind of baking cake display paper- a thrift find for me- but any paper will do.

Start from the bottom of ornament and glue each circle on in a row.  Begin the next row on top of the bottom row, stick them close together so they overlap


Fill your entire ornament!  At the top you may only fit one or two circles, just use as many as you need to fill in the empty space.

The hardest part is making enough circles (unless you have a whole bag from multiple other DIYs 😉

Do you like the fringe trees?  Here is the DIY!

Would make a great gift for an ornament exchange- handmade, unique and beautiful!
