I shared this ornament over at Under the Table and Dreaming
during Stephanie Lynn’s Handmade Ornament Series.
I got to thinking about what I could make after Stephanie asked me to participate and since I love to use old cardboard tubes for different projects, I pulled out my stash, played around a bit, and come up with this simple ornament for all of you.
Cardboard Snowflake Ornament
Here is how you can make your own.
-Cardboard tubes cut into 1/2 in. strips
-White acrylic paint
Paint the tubes white inside and out.
Then coat the cardboard with the glitter paint also inside and out.
Dry fit your design.
Once you got it how you would like, begin gluing the pieces together.
Add a button to the center for a little something extra.
I decided to add a glittery button on top of the first to bring the glitter to the front.
Tied some embroidery string onto it for hanging and done!
Hang it on the tree and let the lights catch the glitter.
This is a simple project but looks great on the tree!
If you would like, you could add another layer of the tubes to add more dimension to the snowflake. Just play around and make it your own!
