Lacy Recycled Holiday Ornaments (from magazine pages)

It's that time of year that we start decorating for the holidays.  It's also that time of year when we all get super crafty!  These recycled ornaments are a blast to make with friends.  They look great on top of a gift or on the tree.  Warm up some hot chocolate, gather a few friends and get crafting!  I'll bet you already have everything you need to make these, too!
Happy Holidays everyone and stay tuned for another ornament DIY next week.
 Beautiful, lacy, recycled holiday ornaments!
Here's the how to video! 

 You'll need:
Wax paper
Magazine pages
Spray paint (optional)
Roll your magazine pages around a pencil to create a tube 
Secure the edge with glue and let dry.  You'll need about 5 tubes per ornament 
Cut in 1/2" sections 
 Lay down some wax paper and dab the pieces in glue and start creating your ornament
After your ornament dries for about 30 minutes, spray it with silver metallic spray paint and let dry for another 15 minutes. 
 Paint the edges with more glue
 Sprinkle with glitter
Hang from a ribbon 


  1. I love ornaments! I've seen something similar with paper towel rolls. Of course the paper towel rolls make bigger ornaments and door decorations.

  2. This is an amazing project. I can't wait to try it. So often I see things I want to try and I have none of the supplies. This is all done with products at hand. Thanks
