Paper Ornament Tree and Snow & Graham Giveaway


Introducing my DIY paper ornament Christmas tree! It's no surprise that I'm a big fan of Snow & Graham's beautiful papers, as I use them often in my decor projects. Well, this year I wanted to attempt a tree chock-full of handmade paper ornaments and Snow & Graham generously provided the paper to do so, as well as a gift wrap giveaway for one of my readers! Your presents will look so pretty, people won't want to unwrap them. ;)


I chose papers that would complement my red and aqua color scheme for 2012. I also made a bunch of yarn pom-poms to add another handmade dimension to the tree. My secret to making this tree a reality? I employed several little elves (a.k.a, my mom, mother-in-law, and sister) to join in ornament making post-Thanksgiving dinner. ;) They were a huge help.

Even 3 year old Stella helped make the garland by punching out all the paper circles. By the way, I got the garland idea from Snow & Graham's blog. It is super easy to make if you have a paper puncher. Check out their great video tutorial.


Here is a snapshot of the different types of paper ornaments on the tree. The inspiration came from across the blogosphere.
Just click on these numbers to go straight to the original tutorial I used for each ornament:
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6

For the star on top of the tree, I just made a larger version of ornament #6 above!


Lastly, I used my remaining pom-poms and yarn to embellish my presents under the tree (wrapped in Snow & Graham paper, of course!). Just wrap a couple strands of yarn around the box, secure with tape, and tie on an extra pom-pom or two. Voila!
