When JoAnn sent us a box of craft supplies, we were so excited to follow some of their suggestions and get started on Christmas crafts! 

We loved making this DIY Twisted Paper Ornament, and I know you will love making it with your kids too. 

What you need:

  • Craft paper
  • Glue gun
  • Spray bottles
  • Ribbon
  • Plastic ornaments

This awesome DIY holiday craft is so simple, and it doesn’t need to be “perfect” to be great. You can make your paper strips any size you want. We used 1” strips, but they are even great wider, thinner, or even crooked. Your imagination is the limit here.

Next, we filled our small spray bottles with water and lightly spritzed one strip at a time. The girls loved this part! 

Once the paper was made a little more pliable by the water,  we rolled the strip length-wise.

I took on the next job of hot gluing each strip, twisting and bending as I went. The girls chose the patterns for their ornaments and were so happy with how they turned out!

I love that this craft gave each girl a chance to show her personality.

The result is a unique look that they are so proud of! 

There are so many kid-friendly holiday craft ideas over at JoAnn. Next up: we’re planning to follow their fabric gift bow tutorial using up some of our fabric remnants.
