We're dusting off the Crate Christmas tree and decorating it with handmade ornaments crafted from our very own, Bundled Up! There are hundreds of ways to create personalized ornaments - we've just a few to share this week. We welcome you to take a peek! They're as cute as the real deal, if not more so!
After coming across numerous of these rolled paper ornaments on Pinterest, I couldn't wait to try them myself. The Bundled Up collection holds just the right combination of colors for the look I wanted to achieve.
I cut a multitude of sizes to create mine. The largest one (showing the snowman paper) was created using both 4 x 4 and 3 x 3 squares; while the smaller ones were 3 x 3 and 2 x 2.
The quickest way I found to make the cones was with my tiny attacher. One staple and it was held just perfectly. Once I had a pile of little cones, I brought out the hot glue gun and attached them to a circle of chipboard (you can use any kind of cardboard, just something sturdy to glue the pieces onto). I created one layer at a time and then hot glued the smaller layer on top.
The finishing touch came together by adding a few embellishments from the layered sticker pack, cardstock die-cuts and badges.
While these are adorable on a tree, they can also be hung directly on the wall like previewed in my first photo.
