DIY Scalloped Christmas Ornaments
Want a fun and fairly easy craft to do this holiday season? I have for you a DIY Harry Potter Ornament. You can obviously do this with any paper, but I did this one with pages copied from a Harry Potter book. So, here’s the directions for the Harry Potter ornament I made last week!
DIY Better Than Me
Here’s a few tips to have your DIY ornament turn out better than mine:
- The bottom of mine turned out a little wonky…so when I tried again, I completely glued down the first piece to avoid any gaps. It seems to have helped!
- I copied pages from the book I used onto stock paper. I didn’t use the book pages ~ not only are they not thick enough, but I also didn’t want to tear up my Harry Potter books 🙂
3. Another tip, if you are using book pages and you want the words to all go in the same direction – you can only use 1/2 of the circle. The other half will be upside down! So, you will need twice as many circles to accomplish this!
This is the final product of my second attempt. I think it turned out much better ~ won’t this look great on a Christmas tree!
So, what do you think? Are you ready to put your crafty hat on and give this DIY Ornament a try?!
I’d love to see what you come up with…post a picture in the comments if you try it!
I think I might try this with a Jane Austen book! Wouldn’t that be lovely 🙂
