DIY: Domino Snowflake Ornaments


Domino has a no-sweat tutorial for making whimsical, snowflake ornaments from paper, which has amped up my holiday spirit. These ornaments remind me a lot of the Modern Paper Ornaments that Grace from Design*Sponge posted. It amazes me how you can do so much with a few sheets of paper! On that note, you should also check out my Easy Snowflake Chandelier DIY. If you get motivated to cut and tape these snowflake ornaments, please share photos!

Here's What You Need

  • 3 sheets of 8½" by 11" heavyweight paper (construction paper will do)
  • 1 sheet for the larger loops (shown in red)
  • 2 sheets for the smaller loops (shown here in gold)
  • X-acto knife
  • Ruler
  • ½" double-sided tape
  • 18" piece of ribbon

To learn the steps,

  1. Cut the paper into 1-inch-wide strips. Cut seven 8-inch-long strips for the larger loops, and twelve 6-inch-long strips for the smaller loops.
  2. Using your double-sided tape, make all of your strips into loops, or for extra strength, secure the outside with regular Scotch tape.
  3. To make the spokes of your snowflake, use double-sided tape to attach two small loops to a large loop — one attached to the inside, one to the outside. The one large loop remaining is the center of your snowflake.
  4. Arrange your spokes around the large leftover loop and attach them with double-sided tape.
  5. Attach the sides of your spokes together using double-sided tape.
  6. Cut your ribbon to the desired length, loop one of the spokes, and hang!

Cute. They kind of remind me of those construction paper chains I used to make as a kid to countdown the days until Christmas.
