Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Circles Ornament step 2 cut paper strips

With the hole punch, make holes in both ends of each strip. The hole should be 1/4 inch from the end and centered across the strip. Best guess is fine here.

Using the smallest strip of paper, form the first circle and match the holes.

With the next smallest paper strip, add the second circle around the first. Match the holes.

In increasing size, add the remaining strips of paper forming larger circles each time and matching the holes.

Wrap the ribbon around the outer portion of the Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Circles Ornament and thread the two ends of the ribbon through all of the holes from the inside to the outside.

Tie a knot near the paper. The knot encloses the wrapped ribbon and holds the layers together.

The examples above used a light-weight decorative card stock with the same pattern on both sides.

This Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Circles Ornament would be just as pretty made of construction paper or any color tinted paper.

This would make a great children's coloring project too. Just mark the strips on a piece of white paper and let the children color the strips before cutting them to size. They could have fun putting their own designs on each strip as well.

These Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Circles Ornaments take very little time to make and would be pretty as a garland above a fireplace or along a dining room sideboard.

Being so easy, the ornament makes a great project for family members of all ages to have fun making easy and inexpensive decorations. 

Have fun!

A few simple and inexpensive materials along with a few simple tools makes this Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Circles Ornament simple, fun and fast for anyone to do.
