Easy Christmas Crafts: Paper Doily Greeting Card Ornament


Our Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Doily Greeting Card Ornament uses a paper doily, some ribbon and a greeting card. This ornament allows you to show off those pretty Christmas or Holiday cards hanging on your tree, a door knob, the edge of a mirror, or other places you want to highlight with a decoration.

Take a look at these four finished Easy Christmas Crafts Paper Doily Greeting Card Ornaments hanging on the tree.

  • Greeting card
  • Ruler   
  • Scissors

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Paper Doily Greeting Card Ornament:

Fold the paper doily in half with the wrong sides together.

Fold the paper doily to form an arc. Bring each folded edge up to meet in the middle of the semicircular shape. Press the folded edges firmly.

Place the folded doily arc on the greeting card to help you decide what scene you want to show. There should be enough of the scene peeking out of the top of the ornament to add decoration and to tease people into wanting to see more.

Once the scene is chosen, mark along the edges of the angle on the face of the greeting card.

Next, cut around the top of the scene. The top can follow the scene on the card, can be a semi-circular shape (see mouse below) or can be some other shape (see winter scene below).
