3d paper finial ornament

This sparkly, wintery papercrafted ornament is sure to look great on any Christmas tree. Use these pretty blues, or change it up to match your décor.
Step 1

Click here to download and print the template; then cut out the shape.

Step 2

Fold six sheets of cardstock in half, then lay the pattern with the straight edge on the fold of each sheet. Trace the pattern, then cut out six ornament shapes.

Step 3

Adhere each ornament shape back to back using the tape runner. Before adhering the final two pieces together, lay a loop of ribbon in between the layers to make a hanger for the ornament.

Step 4

Lightly brush Mod Podge® onto each side of the ornament and sprinkle with glitter. Let dry.

Step 5

Add stick-on rhinestones to add sparkle to all sides of the ornament.

Step 6

Make a tassel with Gold floss.
TIP: To make a tassel:

  • Leave the label wraps on the floss skein and find an end of the floss. Carefully pull out a 9" [22.9 cm] length of floss and cut. Then cut the 9" [22.9 cm] length down to one 3" [7.6 cm] length and one 6" [15.2 cm] length. Set aside.
  • Without taking off the labels, fold the skein in half so that the loops of both ends are side-by-side. Open the loops of both ends and thread the 3" [7.6 cm] length of floss through, tighten and tie a knot. Do not trim the top knot threads but snip off the label wraps.
  • Wrap the 6" [15.2 cm] floss length around the floss skein about ½" [1.3 cm] below the knot you tied in Step 2. When you have gone around a few times, tie a double knot and trim the ends short.
  • Hold the top of the tassel and the knot. Slip the scissors into the bottom loop on the opposite end of where you are holding and cut through the floss. Trim ends to even, if needed.
Step 7

Tuck the ends of the tassel into the bottom of the ornament and secure it there with a dab of hot glue.

Step 8

Make a small bow from Gold ribbon and glue it to the top of the ornament.
