folded paper icicles

This project is intended for kids ages 4+. These sparkly icicles are fun to make by simply folding paper. Just add some glitter and hang on your Christmas tree!
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template and step-by-step diagram.

Step 2

Cut out the long, thin triangle pattern; then trace it onto construction paper.
TIP: You will need two triangles for each ornament.

Step 3

Lay two triangles on your workspace, perpendicular to one another with one slightly overlapping the other and glue together.

Step 4

Turn them over and position them so that one triangle is pointing to the left and one is pointing down. Fold the triangle that is pointing to the left over the other triangle so that it’s now pointing to the right. Then, take the triangle that is pointing down and fold it up over the other triangle so that it is now pointing up.

Step 5

Repeat folding the triangles over one another, alternating, until you have it completely folded.

Step 6

Now you can gently stretch your folded icicle.

Step 7

Fold the top triangle up and glue a piece of yarn, ribbon or string to make a hanger for your ornament.

Step 8

If you wish to glitter your icicle, add glue along the edge, then sprinkle with glitter. Let dry.
