Christmas is soon here and we are preparing for the festivities with a day full of crafts and gift wrappings – everything done with wallpaper. Here we have three simple crafts you can create for your Christmas tree. A very easy one, easy and a bit more difficult one. Take a look at our guide and follow the steps to create your own decorations in minutes.

Very easy – Christmas tree

  1. You will need – your favorite motif, a scissor, pencil, string, a hole puncher and tape.
  2. Draw a tree in any size on the wallpapers back, or print a finished template, there are plenty to find on Pinterest. Add the template with the top toward the drawn pine tree and draw another.
  3. Cut out the pine trees, but do not cut the middle off.
  4. Fold them together with the motif out and tape them together.
  5. Make a hole in the top and attach a string in the desired length.
  6. Finished! Hang as a decoration on your Christmas tree.

A bit more difficult – Christmas ball ornament

  1. You will need – your favorite motif, a scissor, pencil, string, two clips and a hole puncher.
  2. Measure out bite-sized borders and cut out as many as you need. The longer the border you do the more borders you will need, depending on how dense of a ball you want to create.
  3. Make a hole in the center of each border and a hole at the tip of each edge.
  4. Then attach one of the clips in the middle and on all borders.
  5. Begin to assemble the ball.
  6. One tip is to attach some borders in the other clip, and then collect the rest and draw in the same clip.
  7. Attach a string to the desired length in one of the clips.
  8. Finished! Hang as a decoration on your Christmas tree.
