Newspaper Christmas Tree Balls


Hi there,

Number 17 of this Advent calender will show you a DIY-idea for your Christmas tree: Christmas Tree Balls out of old newspapers.

What you'll need:
  • old newspaper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glasses/cups in different sizes
  • stapler
How it works

Put 8 to 10 newspaper pages over each other.


Use your glasses/cups as stencils and draw different sized circles onto the newspaper paper.


Cut out the circles and staple them them together in the middle of the circles.



Fan out the different layers of the circle until it looks like a Christmas ball. Afterwards you can put little hooks into your Christmas tree balls and hang them on your tree.



If you want a little variation you can also cut out small Christmas trees. This I did last year and it also worked out really well.

  1. This is so cool! We’d love it if you’d shared it at our Found & Foraged link up party. This Friday at 8PM Central Time…normally it’s Saturdays at 8PM but InLinkz is having some sort of maintenance server update during our normal party time. Anyhoo, we’d love to see you at http://houseofhipsters.com/
