DIY (326) – Paper recycle: Cardboard gingerbread decorations

Hi everyone!!!!

Today we will see how to make beautiful Christmas decorations that resemble gingerbread cookies… But, beware!!! We’re not talking about a recipe, we’re talking about paper recycling!

This project is also suitable for children, who will have fun decorating the small silhouettes obtained from packaging paper.

Let’s get started!!!

DIY N. 326

PAPER RECYCLE: CARDBOARD GINGERBREAD DECORATIONS

material:

recycled thin cardboard from a box – scissors – pencil – twine – white felt pen

Start by drawing on the cardboard simple Christmas figures with a pencil, such as hearts, stars, houses.

Cut out the figures on the cardboard with scissors. This if the cardboard used is thin otherwise we would need a cutter.

Once we have cut our gingerbread out of cardboard, we will decorate it with a white felttip pen (like a Polish or a chalkboard marker).

Once the decorations are finished, all that you’ll have to do is to pierce our figures with a big needle or some other pointed object.

Pass the twine inside the hole and our cardboard gingerbread Christmas decorations are ready.

Below are some ideas of drawings to be cut out:

I hope you enjoyed also today’s creative idea.

See you tomorrow with another easy DIY!!!

polystyrene ball (you can find it in all diy stores) – roses (you can find them ready in fabric stores or make them yourself with ribbon) – hot glue – colored ribbon – beads

Take a polystyrene ball and glue a piece of ribbon in the shape of a ring on top of it (in order to be able to hang it on the tree). Now attach the roses using hot glue.
