Christmas Paper Chain

December 19, 2011

Make your home look festive with a Christmas Paper Chain. These adorable decorations are cheap, simple and fun to make.

Materials

Christmas Paper Chain template (see below) or use wrapping paper cut to size

Stapler

1. Cut each chain link, leaving approximately 1 cm of white on one side (the printer margin is perfect).

2. Make a circle by overlapping the non-white side over the white edge.

You can use the Christmas Paper Chain for all sorts of things! Below are some ideas.

Wall

Hang up on the wall. Because the chain is made of paper, it’s quite light so good quality blu tack works well.

Tree

Hang on the Christmas Tree, or decorate an outdoor tree on a fine Christmas Day.

We bought a pack of 200 sheets of really bright coloured paper from Kmart for $2.00 and did exactly this. Was cheap and easy and the kids loved doing it. We also did a bit of learning with the 2yo by asking her to pick a colour and or tell us what colour we picked up.

We made all our Christmas decorations this year and it was a lot of fun! I love your printables too :)

These are just what I need because I am getting my lost tinsel in a virtual tangle LOL. I need something pretty to use instead, Thanks Kelly.

Thanks Kelly, my 5 yo daughter is always wanting to create something. We will be doing this tomorrow together with making play dough – you are a lifesaver :)
