These are simple paper ornaments that can add a bit of holiday flair to your home this year.

You can add glitter along the sides of the strips if you desire.

This looks a bit complicated but really, it's a simple craft project.

You will need a die cut machine or a puncher for making these ornaments.

Of course, your trusty scissors could also be useful for making the base scalloped circles for this ornament.

4. Striped Strips

How cute!

Not only are these DIY paper ornaments adorable, it's kind of cool that they look like spaceships, too.

The materials that you will need to make these tree ornaments are paper in two colors, scissors, needle, thread, pencil, ruler, and two beads.
